Alienware 15 Keyboard issue

Jump to solution

Awhile ago I spilled water onto my laptop and it made its way to the motherboard. I took it apart, dried it out, cleaned it with rubbing alcohol, and it ended up working again. Back to its former glory. HOWEVER, now I'm noticing some issues with the keyboard/keys. "A" and "S" are both entered if I press one of them individually, and there are some similar problems with the keys around "P" and "Backspace".
Question is, can I disassemble the laptop again and fix this problem somehow or is it a situation where I'll have to replace the keyboard completely?
Any advice?

Hi, 

I suppose you could try to disassemble the system and make sure the keyboard is seated properly. If it is, it may be best to send it in for repairs.
