Well, this is fairly simple.

There's this IBM 390e Thinkpad that serves to keep my girlfriend on MSN Messenger and off my computer. She spilled some coke on it (guh..) and she says it started repeating either uppercase I or lowercase l, or the number 1 into her chat window, at which point she rebooted it.

When it boots, it displays ERROR 0210 STUCK KEY 2B and beeps incessantly, which prompted me to unplug the AC adapter. I've popped off I, L and 1 and wiped off whatever had built up there, as well as pulled out some hair with tweezers and replaced the keys.

On boot, still the same error. If I attach a PS/2 keyboard it's all good, but I'd still like to get it functionning without one. Is there any way to tell which bloody key is stuck? I can't even get into BIOS like this.
