    Okay, so this is a bit odd but my keyboard only works when i hold down '0'.
    It seems to be like the Ctrl key is constantly being held down and makes the computer unusable. This happened directly after i spilled tea on it, but he only faulty key is Ctrl.

    Any help?

    You have two options here.

    1. Take the machine apart and clean the keyboard and internals properly.

    Do this only if:

    1a - You have no warranty (Although tea on keyboard means warranty is void, anyway)
    1b - You're technically minded and can take the machine apart. There is a guid on www.ifixit.com with pictures etc on how this is done.

    2. Other option is to buy a new keyboard and replace it.
