okay...last night my laptop keyboard got a little bit wet due to stopid drunk friends, just a few drops not very much...everything its okay, except the fact that the key "six" keeps continuously repeat itself without touching it.
liquid >whiskey, and coke i do know that it gets dry and acts like a glue so i did clean up the keyboard ,ive unmounted the keys but still same Sh*t.its an ACER 5742g... i really love this laptop so i need you to give your best into resolving this quest :cry:

new keyboard off ebay should cost you ~30 average and a few weeks to get to you if you know how to fit it

thats providing that no liquid has made it to the mainboard etc and done more damage...

you ask for advice from computer experts, and than when they give you advice you spit in their face. that isnt cool.

but yes, you will need to replace the keyboard, it is only going to cost you about $30. suck it up and buy a replacement keyboard for your laptop.
