You will end up trashing the laptop if you don't have it serviced.
\015\012If water has made it past the keyboard and to the motherboard, you will be done.
\015\012Don't use the unit, find a local service and repair, they may change the keyboard but you will have a working unit when it returns.
\015\012Keyboard for that unit is about $18.00 New. The inspection and blowout, another $50.00
