Two possibilies:-

1) You have shorted out your keyboard and it is pemanently damaged.
2) There still is a little water in your keybaord, and this is causing a short.

If the problem is 2) The best way to dry the machine is to turn it off. Then use a hairdryer and blow between the keys to attempt to dry it out.

playing with your system setup will not help.

Oh yeah, If you cant get into the inside of the keyboard with a hairdryer. Just leave the machine in warm dry place.
