    I spilled some water on the keyboard.. Drained it and let it dry for a while and now it works find. Except the trackpoint buttons (above the touchpad) now trigger clicks for both middle and left click (if i click left click, it's like clicking middle and left at the same time)

    Also some buttons on the keyboard trigger button clicks.. What can i do to fix this?

    I would say that you might need a new keyboard. however take it somewhere and have it checked out to make sure nothing else got damaged from the water.

    Open it up if you are courageous enough and spray compressed air on the components that are wet. If that doesn't work I would leave it unplugged for a week.

    Its important to remember that it isn't necessarily the water that kills it, its turning it on afterward and asking the electronic components to work after exposed to water that shorts everything out. Make sure it is completely dry. Then try it again. You can get compressed air at Costco or on Ebay for about 5 bucks a can.

    Mine was in a similar situation and I was able to get it to work again so all is not lost.
