    I have a Macbook pro mid 2009 version 13".
    I spilled some wine on the keyboard, and I wiped it immediately, but after that 2 keys 'T' and '5' stopped working. I tried to clean the keys, but nothing happens when i press on key. what shall I do ? thanks

    Try PRAM reset (Hold down CMD+OPT+P+R when powering the machine on) if that doesn't work you can:

    1. Bring it to Apple and expect to pay really expensive price
    2. Buy the entire keyboard off eBay and replace it yourself, which will only cost about $30 bucks.
