    Hi guys I am really new here. I want to ask whether my PC will work again or not. So yesterday I stupidly spilled water over my Lenovo G5080. And then I instinctively clean it up with cloths but with the condition the power is still on. I tried restarting the PC again and then it was working well but then suddenly my screen went blank. As I get panicked I browsed the Internet through my mobile and then found out that the things that I've been doing is the things that should not be done on facing this kind of problem :cry::cry::cry:

    As I gathered information from a few forum it is said that I should just let it dry for like 3 - 6 hours without battery and then try to power it on again. I followed that instruction, and when I plug the charger to my laptop the charging indicator was on, so I thought my laptop was working again. But then when I tried to power it up, the charging indicator suddenly went off and there it go :cry::cry::cry:

    What do you think? Is there still any hope on my laptop? I read here that the writer succeeded on recovering her laptop by letting it dry for like 48 hours, if I let it dry for more hours will it have a chance of recovery or not? I'm afraid that the electronics/insides whatnots inside my laptop will short circuit again. Or should I just go to nearest computer repair service? Please do help, this laptop is quite new and I don't have the money for buying a new one... :cry::cry::cry::cry::cry:

    Thank you, looking forward to hear great suggestion from you all guys...

    Uhh...more like 3-6 days.

    I suspect the damage is already done though.
