    Hello all,

    Really frustrated here, hopefully someone can help me out. I am working on a laptop that was damaged with a big glass of water. Luckily, the laptop was off when the water was spilled, but was turned on about 8 hours later. The laptop had some serious problems, but after a little cleaning, it turns on. Here is my problem.

    The AC adapter has a solid green light.
    The AC adapter keeps the machine running.
    The machine will also run off of the battery by itself.
    The AC adapter won't charge the battery.

    Also, the laptop won't "recognize" the AC adapter. The screen gets brighter when I plug in the cord like it supposed to, and the laptop runs off the AC, but the power light on the laptop is not lit up. Windows says that the laptop is running of battery. When plugged in, it says there is 3456 hours of time left (Basically infinite), but when I unplug, it says 50 minutes or whatever is left on the battery.

    What could be going on?
