Question Some Laptop Keys stop working, then work again later.

Jul 3, 2020
Months ago I got a small amount of water on my PC Laptop keyboard (Eluktronics N870HK1)
I dried it out and they appeared to be working fine.

However after a few weeks my CTRL key stopped working, then later the CTRL key works again but my ESC key and a few numbers stopped working.
It seems really strange that my CTRL key would start working again at the exact same time others would stop functioning.

- I've tried updating the drivers through Device Manager automatically. The latest driver for my HID Keyboard Device Says it is from 2006

- I've tried uninstalling the keyboard and restarting my laptop

None of these solutions has worked. Is my keyboard probably toast?
