    Hi,

    My laptop had liquid damage. I opened that up and cleaned it with 99% alcohol and everything was running fine except "wifi hardware not installed" issue. I tried to clean that again and kept it out for like 2 days only. Now the keyboard are not working and just pop up some numbers whenever I type in. Can someone advice me with what am I missing here? Thanks!

    Yeah, the alcohol, sugars and other compounds in the beer are going to wreak absolute corrosive havoc on the logic board and all of the other components in there. I hate to say it but your probably going to have to do a pretty big refit on that Mac to get it back to functioning normally. Sorry :(.

    Sounds like the beer you spilled (as mentioned by the other poster) did some serious damage, and it may be too late to use alcohol to clean the board. Bummers man :(
