    Hello.

    I spilled a bit of vodka on my acer aspire keyboard, some of the keys stopped working few minutes later.
    During the next 4 days most of the keys kept working but then all of them stopped working.
    This was 2 weeks ago, what can I possibly do?

    thanks in advance.

    At the very least you are probably going to need a new keypad/board. You're lucky if that's as far as the damage goes (it didn't get down into the system board and components). I think you have to take it to a reliable laptop service tech if you know one or can find one.

    Yea, something definitely got zapped. You'll need a new keyboard. Like fairnooks said, you're lucky that's all the damage it did. That could've gotten pretty nasty if the motherboard got zapped too.
