Hey guys. around 24 hours ago in the wee morning hours, I accidentally spilled some amount of water on my HP Pavilion dv7-6135dx laptop (probably just a small amount in the lower left hand portion of the keyboard, and it was tap water with a sugar-free flavor packet mixed in). Because of the lack of light I hadn't realized any got in, but once my keyboard became unresponsive I went through the steps and removed the battery and let my laptop sit upside down for a day.
Now, the first two times I turned my laptop back on to test it out, it refused to boot and sat at the black screen with a loud beeping sound. The third time I tried several hours later, it started up with absolutely no issue. It ran alright until I tried typing at one point, and the "1" key became stuck and I quickly shut it back down. The next try went successfully up to the "failed shutdown" screen before it started beeping, and each subsequent time I (unwisely) turned it back on, it was as unsuccessful as the first.
I plan on getting it serviced, but I was wondering if this might just be a matter of replacing the keyboard? It would be great if anyone might have any answers.
