    Hi guys, something odd is happening with my MBA and I'm thinking it's a motherboard/logic board thing, or possibly a RAM thing.

    Some water was spilled on the keyboard and fried something in there. I let it dry out for a while, took it all apart, dried off the components, put it back together and it fires up and gets to the login screen to enter the password.

    Only thing is, a few of the keys don't work, about 8-12 of them in all.

    Now here's the weird part. When I plug in a USB keyboard, the same keys don't work.

    So it's not a keyboard issue, I'm thinking it's either bad RAM bits or a logic board? What do you guys think?

    Yes, it's a keyboard issue. The keys are "stuck" so any keyboard you connect will not be able to override.
