Hello,
The one and two keys on my Dell 1501 laptop only work intermitently. Spilt coffee on that corner of the laptop a month ago, cleaned it up and it worked ok till a week ago. Any ideas please?

Inspiron have a reputation for failing keyboards, particularly the new one's that use the sata like connection to the mobo, try using the windows keyboard to identify if its hardware related. 99.9% chance it is hardware related.
