so heres a dumb one for ya. I had just made a freshly pressed juice of my favorite kind and just as i sat down by my desk i tilted some out of the glass, just lightly not a big amount. I was not even worried about it being broken because it just didnt seem realistic due to the little amount I had spilled. I started wiping and when it all seemed good i plugged it back in and it would light up, but not work at all. Now my question is; is there any way it could potentially also short my pc as it happened? could it be that poorly made?

Possible but you're going to have to teardown the keyboard at the very least to get to the spill. You could just disconnect the keyboard and leave it be, while you source a replacement generic USB driven keyboard to see if the system powers up.

I will try opening up the keyboard but maybe theres nothing i can do. Pc boots up, but it seems not the same anymore. It seems waay slower and I cant really tell how this would happen.
