    'P' key gets stuck on keyboard-won't stop typing 'P'.
    My macbook sometimes does this weird thing where it continuously types 'P' whenever I click in a text box. It can happen in the middle of me typing, or as soon as I click in a text box. I've had to backspace quite a few times just typing this thread because it's typed 'P' so much. One time I left my macbook open in Word, and it typed like four pages of just 'P's.

    My computer also makes a 'dinging' sound whenever it starts flipping out and typing 'P'. Sometimes it will only type a few P's for a little while, other times it won't stop.

    How can I fix this?
    I'm not sure if it's water damage, it could be though.
    My friend threw a snowball inside and it smashed all over my laptop.
    Really friends? Wtf.

    Thanks for the input!

    Is the p-key stuck in the down position or does it still do it with the key "up"?

    How adventurous are you tech-wise? You could verify that it's a problem with the keyboard by popping open your MB and disconnecting the keyboard. Then use an external KB to see if you continue to have the issue.

    If it's a non-unibody, you can pick up a new keyboard/trackpad assembly for as little as $20 on ebay.

    No, it types everything in the up position; it's never been in the down position.

    And I'm not tech savvy whatsoever
