    I accidentally just spilled a bit of water on my macbook, and now my "0" and "o" buttons respond erratically. For example, when I press "o" and then leave my finger just barely on it, it continues to print "o"s on the screen. Same goes for "0". Does anyone know what the problem might be/how I might get it fixed?

    Any time you spill water on a computer you want to immediately turn it off and let it dry for at least a day or two, if not a couple more. If you continue to use it while wet, the internal components could become damaged as the water slowly travels through. Once the water dries your keys may go back to normal.

    All true but don't wait for it to dry out. Immediately air dry it. Canned air works well or fan. Use to use 90% rubbing alcohol to further dry it out ASAP. May be different now.
