I have a samsung laptop with a chiclet keyboard almost identical to a macbook's. Last night my 6 year old spilled some sprite on it, and now the T and R keys dont work. They arent stuck or jammed, they click down and pop up just fine, but when you try typing using them, the letters. Sometimes it will make a continuous row of R or T without me pressing anything. Ive plugged in a usb keyboard and it works fine, but is a pain to type with. I use his laptop for business so need to fix it soon, if anyone knows a way to fix the keys I would appreciate it. (also, if I were to take it to best buy or staples how long would it take to fix?)

The keyboard is usually fairly easy to remove. Do this and clean it with some rubbing alcohol. The sugar prevents the contacts from closing
