keyboard not working after cleaning - everything else does :(

hey guys,

I am an idiot and was trying to clean my macbook with a cloth and some cleaning product. when i first noticed the foam, I quickly switched the cloth to a paper towel and kept cleaning. after finishing, I turned it on and now the keyboard isn't working. it boots, USB is fine, internet connection either, but the keyboard won't work at all.

help me please :(

ps: before that, my '4' key wasn't working as well. I mean, when I type in Firefox or other browser, it doesn't work, it sounds like it's stuck, but when I type '4' in Finder or any other writing tool it works fine. it started right after i changed my HD.

Looks like you've killed your keyboard. Thes things are VERY allergic to liquids. You might have to replace the whole topcase, as the keyboard is integral with that.
