Question about Acer NSK8458AN Keyboard
Both control buttons are not working, tested using the KeyboardTester, none works, I think my sister spilled a drink on it, but it affected none of the other keys except the CTRL buttons
There is an IC that translates key-presses into a usable datastream and it may be part of the keyboard assembly since many of them come from a few manufacturers.
The spill has either disabled or damaged that chip and unless you are adventurous and want to try removing it and bathing in distilled water, allowing it to dry for several days, you will have to have it replaced.
DIY may not cure the problem anyhow as the chip might have been damaged as mentioned.
This shouldn't cost more than $100 US to replace; the keyboards cost likely under $10 US from the original maker.
