    I have a mid-2007 Macbook Pro (A1226). I accidentally spilt soup on it, and now the "z, x, c" keys no longer work. The apple store said I need a keyboard replacement. However, do you think that if I take apart the keyboard and clean it with rubbing alcohol, it will fix it? Or if not rubbing alcohol, what kind of solution could I use?

    It's worth a try. Rubbing alcohol should work fine.

    This happened to me with my mid-2007 MBP just two weeks ago when I spilt hot tea into the right hand side of the keyboard. Same thing: several keys wouldn't work.

    I took it apart, made sure it was clean and dry but no luck!

    In the end I replaced the keyboard myself for about £60 and counted my blessings that I hadn't fried the logic board.

    Good luck with the problem.
