Fried keyboard

last night i spilled a little bit of water on my dad’s desk, and some of it splashed on his stuff (wacom tablet and keyboard). he was gone, and doesn’t know about the situation yet. i tried taking the keys off and cleaning everything, making sure it wasn’t wet, but i think some water seeped inside and now most of the keys don’t work, half the ones that do type little squares, and i’m a complete noob. so if anyone knows of anyway i can fix it (and not have to tell dad or buy a new keyboard) any help you can give would me much appreciated. kirupa’s one of the few forums i go on, and this is the only one with a category that this thread might fit in. ssorry if it’s in the wrong place, plizz help! :frowning:
