    Sorry if I didn't post on the right section.

    So basically I spilled liquid on my laptop keyboard and now it doesn't work anymore.
    I turned it upside down for a while, I blow dried it and yeah at first it worked but after like... 2 minutes it stopped working forever! Guess the liquid short circuited the keyboard.

    Should I just send my laptop in to some store and get it fixed?
    Or should I remove the keys (which sounds really complicate and a delicate work)
    Maybe I should uninstall the keyboard driver and re install in?

    For more info I'm using a COMPAQ Presario v6000

    ***P.S: The weirdest thing is that when I open my laptop, it makes a loud beeping noise and then I kinda freezes on the startup screen (shows COMPAQ, and tells you to press ESC for config)
    So I press ESC hoping it works and yeah it does. I press ESC again and windows starts up.
    -> Does it mean that only the ESC button on my keyboard work?
