Default I broke my keyboard :/

I spilled a cup of tea over it (we English love our tea) and some of the buttons stopped working, including the A key, which sucked because I wanted to play CS:S.

So I took the keyboard apart, gave it a clean, put everything back in it's place (I didn't know keyboards were so complicated and fiddly) and put it back together.

Now none of the keys work [face_plain]

So now I can't play any of my games or listen to any of my music until I get a new keyboard. I'm broke at the moment too. At least I have a laptop for now.

You've spilled stuff on your keyboard a few times haven't you? Sounds to me like you need one of those plastic keyboard covers to keep the liquid out of it.

That'll teach you to be more careful around your computer when you are drinking anything.

You guys really have to stop spilling the stuff over

There's a spill-o-tea syndrome floating
