Certain keys on keyboard have stopped working

Specs: Windows Vista
The S,T, ?/ 7 = ` and comma keys on my laptop have stopped working, it may of gotten the slightest of water exposure from droplets of water dripping of my hands, can these be fixed without having to invest in getting the whole keyboard replaced ? Thing is i removed the keys covers (because this has worked in the past, blowing dust and such off, i then turned my computer off and only then realising I needed those certain keys to get access again and in a rage kind of tore the rubber covering of the actual key, you know red little rubber protection thing?) Anyway I'm using an onscreen keyboard for the keys that don't work. My laptop has my everything on it, memories,art,writings and i know you can get all of it off the laptop but i like it and do not want a new one, so is there any hope on fixing the certain keys? Yours at a loss not so knowledgable laptop user!!

Uhhh, take it apart and clean it?

Or...buy an external USB keyboard and plug it in?

This post should probably be in 'General Hardware' too...

Dunno, you rambled on and on about abusing your machine with water and rage or something....I don't wanna re-read it.

But uh, if you damaged the hardware then yea...it's probably broken and needs... replacing?

Look in your owners manual, most laptop keyboards are swappable, here's a google search to help you out:
