Beer spilt on trackpad.

Computer works fine, never had a hiccup. Swipes and gestures work, as well as tap to click. Depressing the clickpad no longer works. Any idea on what i should attempt to do? I have overlooked the upper case guide, but it never gets into the trackpad.

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Keyboard and every single key works fine. Its just the trackpad that no longer registers regular clicks. Swiping back and forth, scrolling up/down, four finger swipes up/down still work, as well as tap to click. I had to plug in an external mouse to turn on tap to click.

Try an external keyboard and mouse to isolate the problems.
