Can't drag and drop!

I'm having a few difficulties with my laptop, running Win XP. I did spill water on it yesterday but I did manage to dry it out and it seems to run fine... however I cannot seem to drag and drop; I can't drag files or folders and I can't even move around a layer in Photoshop.

Maybe it has something to do with my keyboard. Cos I also can't use the right shift to make a ! and I can't use either of the shifts to do a capital A.

This is becoming a major nuisance! Anyone know anything I could try?

Somehow I can still move things around in MSWord!
Firefox, Photoshop and general Windows stuff won't let me do it.

Word uses left click and drag to move everything.
The water spillage was not a good idea and it's entirely possible mart of the matrix is damaged. Realistically an external keyboard you plug into the USB port would be the cheapest option.

Check to see if the ESC key is stuck.

I think it has something to do with the esc key but it doesn't appear to be stuck...
