    I have a black macbook. the Last one before Palle went unibody.

    So a couple of days ago some person spilled a bowl full of La Paz Batchoy on my macbook. It instantly shut iitself of. I took off the charger and battery. Hanged it up till it stopped dripping (a good five minutes at least...ganon siya ka basa) then stuffed it in a box of rice and left it there for around 18 hours. Then I blow dried it for an hour then stuffed it back into the moisture soaking bigas for a couple more hours.

    The n I tested it and miracle of miracles it TURNED ON! I got the apple cd and did a hardware test. Everything was fine. RAM was undamaged, Logic Board was working fine as well. There was a bit of a panic attack when it couldnt read my hardrive but I fixed that with a screwdriver and some cleaning of the hardrive conncectors (and alot of praying)

    So now its wroking fine. I'm typing this entry on it now as we speak actually. Touchpad is fine, kaya parin mag multi touch. The keys are okay, a bit sticky but that's to be expected. All keys are working except for the BACKSPACE and F11-12 keys.

    Anybody know if there's a way I could fix this?

    I already popped the key off to be honest. I was pressing and diddling that rubber circle thingy directly and it still wasnt working. :(
