So my laptop's keyboard is acting PRETTY stupid. I can't use my Left Shift Key with the zxcvm,./ keys and the space key. ._- I've tried installing and reinstalling the keyboard driver but it didn't work. I don't know if I have to wait or something but what I've tried is just poop.

It hasn't acted like this before. I did shook some water on it by mistake BUT it wasn't a lot, I've made worst spills on other keyboards, and I dried it off.

Now I know all of the keys work BUT the shift will now..."connect" with those mentioned keys. Like if I hold down shift while pressing a key the typing line will not budge.

I need some help from someone more tech savy than me D:< if you help I'll give you a cookie yoh.

Next time you spill.

Remove power and batteries from object.

Remove water or whatever was spilled.

Reintroduce power and batteries.

If you dont do this then your circuits may be shorted, etc. Too bad. Maybe it will fix itself, maybe you need a new keyboard. Perhaps waterproof?

Lol It's funny but I think the problem is a something you did via keyboard like for instance for awhile with my old keyboard a combination I pressed made it impossible for me to use the space as anything but delete, also I wasn't able to use my shift key for anything and when in combinations with a bunch of other stuffy it was all type of wacky. Bet Waker can tell you what you did.

Left Shift Key works with certain rows. Right Shift Key Works with certain rows. Typing fine but not comfortably.

Well, you need to see if it's a software problem or a hardware problem first. Plug in an external keyboard and see if it works fine. If it does, it's a hardware problem and you'll likely have to get your keyboard replaced for it to work fine. Other wise, it's a driver/software problem, in which case you should run a diagnostics on your computer and possibly try cleaning your Driver Cache. Do this by cleaning your HDD (Right click from My Computer and HD Cleanup or something along those lines) and clicking the "delete temporary files" button.

Hope this helps.

I'm believing it's a software problem because of past problems and the fact that the cap locks key is also acting funny (it has a light and it's light won't go off), which it did in the past (I forgot how I fixed it).

I'm having trouble doing what you said for a software problem tho. O_o. I'm looking around for something to cleanup the temp files but I'm a bit lost smh. Any hints?

Go to My Computer and right click your main harddrive

Open up properties andddd

then you get that window. Click Disk Cleanup. This will show you a little prompt that might take a while to pop up a menu.

And just tick everything off. But make sure the temp files is clicked off. Then hit ok.

It can't be a driver problem, smh.

The issue happened after he spilled water on it, did it not? You guys, seriously. You guys. It's not like that water had some viruses on it.

I would just find out what keyboard you have and look up whether or not other people with that product had similar issues.

Thank you Waker.

It's like they don't even consider listening to me. But at least they listen to you.

I did spill water on it but it didn't immediately affect it and also the key slots weren't really where the water hit. It was like a splash of water near the space bar. >.> After I realized the left shift key was acting weird, I then realized the right shift key was as well.

Left shift key can operate with most, if not all, of the upper keys. From A-' and from Q-|
The right key only operates with all of the bottom area including A-' and z-/

What's even weirder is that the left shift key can manipulate BN which are at the bottom and the right shift key can manipulate TY.

And if I press the Left shift key in a special way I can produce "?".

._. Also my cap locks light is on all the time...but it goes from a bit dim to bright instead of off to bright. This has happened before...

Oh and my F11/Mute button light doesn't flick on but lol again this has happened before. I can fix this by re-installing this IDT control panel (which I need to get to because it's gone faulty for the 2nd time.)...

So yeah. My laptop is a weirdo.
