If it's in the keyboard, you need remove it and rinse thoroughly in water. Then leave it for upto a few days to dry out before refitting.

I spilt coffee on mine last week and didn't notice till next day. (I thought it just splashed the screen)

Esc, g, h and numeric 9 don't work. I haven't had time to fix it yet if it is possible anyway after leaving it 24 hrs.

Cheap PS/2 keyboard (+USB adapter) saves the day. On-screen keyboard is very irritating.

Also watch no liquid got in DVD drive. HDD is safe, it's sealed.
