last night, right after i got out of the shower i grabbed my laptop and tried to read some post on some website, but everywhere i clicked, it would highlight stuff on the page, so i decided to restart. instead of starting back up, it entered setup utility, and now i can't get my keyboard to respond at all to actually enter start-up mode. i've tried to recover it using toshibas recovery method (press 0 and then the power button) but all that does is, once in setup utility, give me the option to exit without saving changes, but since my keyboard doesnt seem to be responding after that point i cannot select 'yes'

is it possible the water from my hair could have damaged my keyboard? is there something that can be done?

i should probably mention that i just bought this computer in june, so out-of-dates stuff shouldn't be an issue, but i dont know very much about computers
