Let it dry. If it doesn't work, get a new keyboard.

My wife was sitting on the couch drinking wine last night while watching Animal Planet. Our dog was on the couch next to her. A dog barks on the show, making our dog leap to her feet and start barking. My wife was surprised, flinched, and the next thing you know there was about a 10 foot spread of wine across the couch and rug. The worst part was that the bottle was empty so it was either no more wine or start licking the couch.

The "a" works when you type "laugh", use that one, and delete the "l, u, g, and h". Problem solved!

Wow, it must have been in the final gasps when I posted that, because by the time I tried to post again, virtually all the keys were dead. I'm at the office now (and keeping all beverages far, far, away) and will be a new keyboard on the way home.

Argh! :)

if you're talking about a detachable computer keyboard try ruinning it through the dishwasher--no soap. Let dry completely. It might come through OK--if not you haven't lost anything. If you're talking about a laptop take it into a computer repair place.

Yeah, my old one was clearly a lightweight. One glass o' wine and it was down for the count. For grins, when I go home I'm gonna try BoJo's dishwasher idea (below). After all, the thing's dead so it can't get any worse.
