I spilled a few drops on the keyboard and 1h later some keys dont work

Well anyway I somehow got a few drops into the keyboard, and a hour later keys 1,3,-,q,t,u,p,],and j stop working simultaneously. This happened at around midnight so I was brain-dead and waited a hour before I thought of turning it off and unplugging it(i need to unscrew the battery). I hope I can somehow get it to work again.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

If it is just the keyboard, then try cleaning with a clean cloth dampened with alcohol or Q-tips with alcohol. If the spill got onto the system board, you can try taking the laptop apart and also clean with alcohol. Since it has been a short time since the spill, you should look for whitish residue or water marks on the system board. You should also check the keyboard connector. good luck.
