If the liquid is thin and clear, try unplugging the keyboard,

If an expansion card does not work, check that all internal cables are
securely connected, that the card is configured correctly, that its use
of system resources does not conflict another card or motherboard
component, and that legacy resources (if it is an ISA card) are
properly declared in the BIOS Setup utility. Check also that the
software which drives or uses the card is correctly configured.
Use the BIOS Setup utility to ensure that the settings are correct. If
the settings appear to have altered, there may be a fault with the
CMOS battery which may need to be replaced (see the Motherboard
Features & Upgrades chapter for instructions).

application software also may not allow you to read or write to
diskettes during certain other operations, or until you are about to
exit the program.
