Basically last night i spilt a bit of tea on the keyboard and it worked fine but this morning my C, X, S, W and Z keys dont work anymore. now i cant login to my mac at all because i need the C button for my password. I cant boot from disk and change the master password cos the C dont work.

If i plugged in an external keyboard, would the laptop recognise the keyboard before it gets to the login screen as i couldn't log in to do any configurations for an external keyboard or anything?

I am letting it dry out now and hope that works as i'm out of warrenty for my macbook.
QUOTE Thanks

It should recognize an external keyboard before booting fully. Tell us how it goes.
