It may just be that there is something stuck under certain keys (maybe beer washed something under there?). The keys do snap off a keyboard so you can get underneath (on most laptops I have seen) but you may be better off getting someone who knows what they are doing to have a look.

I know I have a small piece of chicken under my caps lock key!

let it dry out and see what happens but it might be ****ed. I spilled drink on my laptop last year and it was ok after a week but for the first two days it wouldn't even turn on.

I spilt red wine over my laptop once! And I was so drunk at the time that I didn't realise, so it spent the night having swimming lessons. But it still works

Sounds like sound advice to me

the liquid has probably dried up between the keys and gone sticky. if you can remove the keys - they usually are removable without breakage, then do so and clean in between, if you cant then your laptop is fubared.
