    HELP! Spilt water on laptop!!

    Help!

    Spilt water on laptop and it's still wet inside 2 days later. I left it to dry and then decided to open it and there's a lot of moisture inside (under keyboard).

    Any advice on how to save it?*

    Remove all power to the laptop. Disconnect all cables. Pull up your keyboard. There should be little rectangle notches you can use a very small screwdriver to pry it up. They should go across the top. Get what moisture you can out with q-tips, power towels, etc. When done, lay it down keyboard down on a towel and take your back panel off. You need to inspect the components on the underside. Do the same methods you used to clean the keyboard area out.

    Disconnect all power, take it apart and have a fan blowing on it for 24 hours... - that if it was water... if it was more than water, then you have to wash it first...

    Thanks for the advice, I stupidly tried to switch it on without checking that it was totally dry, hopefully I haven't ruined it! Even over 48 hours later there was still a lot of moisture under the plastic film on top of the motherboard. Not sure how to lift this film up without breaking something.

    Oh ****..

    Never turn on electrical devices if they get wet. Better wait a week, remove the battery and air them somewhere warm. Some suggest covering the device in a pile of rice can help.

    So does anyone have an idea how much I could get for the chassis and screen (in the UK)? Assuming screen will work as water only went on the keyboard.

    I guess there's a chance the CPU is OK but how to test it? I assume it's not as simple as pulling it out and sticking it in another laptop.
