Question about IBM ThinkPad T42 Notebook
Not sure I can tell you anything you don't already know or want to hear but the first thing I would do is flip the laptop over so any moisture from the spill will seep out of the keyboard etc... The problem being that if the laptop was powered up when the spill occurred, there is no way of knowing where that spill ended up or more importantly...what damage it may have caused... By flipping it upside down.. any residual fluid may drain out and you may get lucky and everything come back to life but the downside is that the fluid could conceivably caused a short someplace on the circuitry beneath the keyboard ... ( hopefully that is not the case) but there is always that possibility... If the only thing that is not working is the right and left command buttons... then you may be able to bypass them with an external mouse... With the power shut off to the laptop... try cleaning that area with alcohol and let air dry for a while... you may have residue beneath the two keys that are causing them to stick or always be on /off so pressing them has no effect... Not sure any of this will help you but it may give you some ideas of what to try.. Good Luck...
