Hi, i need help my husband spilt beer on my toshiba satellite on tuesday night and i did not find out utnil wednesday evening. I wiped it down and probably stupidly turned it on to see the damage. The computer was working fine but the key board not at all. It would either not type anything or very random keys by itself. I left it to dry til this morning and the result was the same. Although i noticed i think that it would charge by itself and had to be switched on. Then my husband, not realizing he had done enough damage took all the keys off individually and took out the battery. i think he did this when it was on. Now it wont even switch on. The only light that works is the charge light. I am in so much trouble as stupidly i do not have back up and have all my work data on the laptop for my own business. What should i do? The other big problem is that i am not in the uk, but in Doha visiting him. There are some computer shops but the language barrier is difficult and i dont know what to tell them to do or whether to trust them. PLEASE somebody help me as i am in so much trouble. Thanks

Or connect it via a USB connector to another computer, if you find no-one wants you taking a screwdriver to their computer after saying that yours is suddenly broken.

The workshops ought to be able to handle that (I don't know what things are like in Doha) but if you can afford to wait till you get back home, it would probably be worth doing so. Don't try to get the actual machine fixed up there, it'll be too much trouble and too much risk.
