    number keys produce different key values? ex. pressing one changes the volume
    I unfortunately spilled water on my macbook yesterday and didn't take the necessary precautions afterwards-- I only let it dry for about eight hours.

    When I first turned my computer on the keys from q to o did not work, so I turned it back off.

    Then when I turned it on again, the keys one through nine did not work, so I turned it back off, and went to sleep. So it dried for another eight hours.

    This morning, the one through nine keys work, but they correspond to different keys. For example, one is the up volume, two is `, three is , four is ], five is [, six is =, seven is unknown, eight is right arrow key, and nine is the up arrow key.

    I know, in general, you can change your keyboard so that each key corresponds to a different key value, so is there anyway I can re calibrate my keyboard?

    Hello, I have EXACTLY the same problem with my number keys, although I did not spill water on them- it just started spontaneously. Did you end up finding a way to fix it? Thanks in advance!
