Hi guys.

I have read some other posts about this and everyone else seems to have a much happier story than I do!

spilled water on the keyboard of my Compaq (couldn't tell you what model though), won't go into how stupid i am. you all know already.

anyway it worked fine for a few days after that; turned on and off fine etc, all keys working, sound working, no symptoms at all so I thought yay! I have escaped the inevitable. I was wrong. Which consequently led me to do another ridiculously stupid action. The battery died so I plugged it into the charger, pressed on....nothing. It will not turn on no matter what I do, the little light that shows that the charger is plugged in doesn't light up either. So I am assuming the worst, but don't know what to do. I removed the battery and opened all the little openable compartments at the back to see if there was anything obvious or burning smell or anything but no. There is a small patch of rust on one of the little screws but it looks too old to be from this incident (it is secondhand).

Im screwed, amn't I? :(

What's the part/product number on the sticker of that Compaq laptop?
