Ok so a really odd thing happened, sometimes (like now) my keyboard would work fine however then it will cut out forcing me to use the on-screen keyboard or a xpadder setup. Basically what happened was I spilled rubbing alcohol on my kb (about 7 ml) and some of it soaked into the keys. I was wondering (other than rice) is there any way to fix this other than time? (the only buttons that do work are the center row -enter)

Rubbing alcohol should just be isopropyl and possibly some distilled water. It should evaporate away, we use pure isopropyl for cleaning electronics at work. If it doesn't come good, the alcohol may have washed some contaminants into it, and a cure could actually be to slosh some pure isopropyl into it and give it a good shake out upside down...
