    the letter "b" no longer works

    this happened a few week back, and it worked off and on (mostly on) after completely drying out the laptop

    now, its dead again (any use of the letter b here has been done using command+v)

    oh yea, its a 2011 Lemon mbp 15" from that famous batch of LEMONS that year (lucky me!)

    So, with absolutely no interest in pouring more money into this lemon, is there anything i can try on my own when i get to the point of no longer being able to stand having to use command+v?

    MBP keyboards on ebay are about $20, if your inclined to spend time fixing it.

    External keyboard is the easiest solution. I'd probably say the computer is not a lemon as the failure of the keyboard is not due to manufacturing defects but due to spilling liquids on it.

    Good luck

    Why call a lemon a notebook from 2011 still working despite your attempts to kill it with liquids ?
