New keyboard for Laptop not functioning right

Hi,

 

Last week I spilled water over my HP Pavilion dv6 keyboard while it was on, which caused the keyboard to stop functioning. I ordered a new keyboard from ebay and it arrived today. I took out the old keyboard and put in the new one (had difficult time trying to feed the ribbon at the end of the keyboard through the pins), however when I turned the laptop on, only a handful of keys were working while others weren't. I took the keyboard out and put it back in and still some keys would work fine and others won't... What could have gone wrong?

The liquid could have gotten to the motherboard.
