    Hello there,

    Today I found that water has spilled over the laptop keyboard from the ceiling... i tried to turn it on but it was not working.. no lights or nothing... i immediately removed the battery from it.. turned it upside down and drained water as much as i can.... and then i tried to dry that by keeping it under the Fan... and tried to turn on after sometime... it turned on and i saw the logo but immediately the screen has gone dark... and finally turned OFF i removed the battery again and kept back under fan... and then turned ON again after some hours... and now its booting and i can see the desktop too but its dark....... Something happend to my display when I turned on at first? Please help me....

    You will probably have to actually open it up and THROUGHLY dry everything. You can't do this without taking the keyboard and any EMI shields off at a minimum.
