The liquid has gotten between the membrane of the keyboard causing it to type other characters not related to the key which has been pressed. This means that you cannot fix the keyboard and you will have to replace the keyboard. You are very lucky that the liquid has not got to the major components and fried that laptop itself.

For the time being you will be able to use the on-screen keyboard which you will find by clicking on the Start Menu>All Programs>Accessories>Ease of Access.

Keys are not functioning!!!

You may need to install a new keyboard, what you do is try hooking up a external usb keyboard if that works then yeah your going to need a new keyboard. You can get these for $25 bucks from ebay. Now if the external does not work for some strange reason then you might have a further issue that is complex.

Let me know ether way.

Keyboard not responding or typing random letters

Sounds like the liquid has acted like a glue. You will need to get a cotton bud and dip it into some clean water. Try and clean the hole again and see if it still playing up. Also restart the computer and retry word to see if the same thing is happening.
