    Today I spilled a little water on my Macbook Pro (OS X Lion 10.7.5). Nothing happened immediately so I wiped it up and thought nothing of it.

    About an hour later the screen brightness graphic showed up on my screen, even though I never touched f2. I pressed f2 and found it doesn't work. (f1 does work though.)

    So I shut it down and turned it back on again, and it automatically ran Apple Hardware Test. I did the test and it returned "No trouble found". I started it up again and I got Apple Hardware test again. I understand that you usually run AHT by holding "d" during startup. I held option during startup and finally got to my desktop and found the following problems with my keyboard:

    -f2 doesn't work
    -2 works, but @ only works with the left shift button
    -w works, but capital W only works with the left shift button
    -s and x are the same as w

    Perhaps the water is causing a short that makes me lose only some keyboard functionality? Do you think that it's causing the "d" key to be "depressed" during startup and thus running AHT? What can I do about this?

    Do not run the computer. And I'd taking it apart to see if it's wet anywhere.
