Is this normal?

    I walked home from the library in the rain. When I got home, I dried my laptop off, but the keyboard was completely spazzing - it wouldn't type, then it'd type letter I hadn't told it to, etc. This went on for a few hours, and I was resigned to going to a shop to get it fixed. My keyboard had gotten a little wet before with no problem, so I was a little confused, but figured moisture was the culprit.

    I started playing chess on it, since that doesn't require a keyboard, and I pressed 'x' to exit, since I forgot my keyboard wasn't working. It worked!

    Did the water mess it up? And did it start working suddenly because the water suddenly evaporated? Or was something else going on?

    Alot of times if electronics get wet you can try them out and they work just fine. I've had it happen with phones, ipods, and the like.

    If the keyboard works fine now then I'd just leave it and don't get it wet again, under the keyboard in a laptop there are a lot of things much more important than the keyboard that can get wet.

    Someone spilled water on my last keyboard and it ruined it, I wasn't too happy about that.

    Bottom line, don't get it wet again. :lol:

    Great - a laptop I can't take anywhere during the spring, fall, or winter...

    Prolly, but those cost like $50, and I have no income, so I'm trying to avoid expenditures like that... :-/
