    It probably is in fact the logic board. Maybe the spill damaged a bit more than just the keyboard.

    Other than that, it could be drivers issue (which I doubt), does this happen when you start up the MBP as well (grey screen with Apple in the center)?

    bought a flood MacBook... :eek:

    Some of the stuff you can spill in the machine, eats away at the electronics.

    My brother spilled a drink on the keyboard, and it destroyed it. Actually ate away the traces on the keyboard.

    Would hate to see what it does to a machine that is turned on.

    I'm going to suggest this; don't flame me and whatnot. But, this is just a guess.

    Hit ctrl+option+cmd+8. See what that does.

    If it doesn't do anything, then I was wrong and this was a useless post.

    Try it, basically puts into a 'high contrast' mode.
