It sounds like either the keyboard has gone bad due to water or the motherboard has short circuited due to the water damage. Try connecting a USB keyboard and see if that works, if not it is more than likely the motherboard.

Problem is, i dont have a keyboard. Plus in 14 years old, and if my dad knew about this !&&* ban me from the pc, so i cant buy another one.. but i left it to dry some more, and it did the same thing but worked 5 minutes after breaking, so i immediately left it to dry in false hope it would fix itself, but a usb mouse and an audio jack headphone work perfectly, if you can respond that would be amazing, and thank you for paying me attention.
