    Can someone please help!..

    After cleaning my laptop keys with a wet wipe the keys began to play up, so i turned the laptop off and now it wont switch on at all!! I took the laptop to the apple store where they said it will cost £400 to fix! Does anyone have any idea what will be wrong with it?

    Thanks

    Some moisture probably got behind the keys onto the circuitry. You could try leaving it a few days in a warm place to let it dry out. This should work if no damage was done.

    What the others said. Oh and would you report back in a couple of days, and let us know if letting it dry did the trick for you? =)

    Hi there,
