Hello, today i spilled yogurt on my acer aspire v. I quicky removed the battery and disassembled the laptop. I tried cleaning everything out, i dont know how good idea it was, but i cleaned it with wet brush (not rly wet) so the yogurt wont stay there and stick. I got everything back and all the letters are working, but theres a problem.

Some letters ar bugging, for example o and 9. If i press o, it will type o9, if i press 9, it will type o9. If i press 1, it will type 12, if i press 2, it will type 23 and so on. The weird thing is that the letters are bugging on numpad aswell, but the yogurt barely got to the letter G so it was nowhere near numpad.. What could cause this?
 
Well if you put it all back together and didn't let it dry out for hours (yes I mean hours) there is probably moisture still in there, which will interfere with the keyboard and possibly other things as well (depending on where it went/is).
 
Greek, or Bulgarian yogurt?

You either have a faulty key matrix on the keyboard (you'd have to replace the keyboard, in that case) or you may have damaged the keyboard controller on the motherboard when you disassembled it and wiped it down with the wet brush.

The easiest way to determine would be to try a new keyboard, external (USB) or the built-in keyboard. If you continue having said problem, then you're likely looking at having to replace the motherboard.

Not a single drop got on the mb bcuz of the metal plate that is under the keyboard. Probably just will buy a new keyboard, its only 10$ on ebay. Other usb keyboards work fine.
