    Well I hope you let it completely dry before you tried to turn it on. Otherwise you fried it for good.

    Hope it wasn't too expensive of a laptop. I'd say if you can't get a response you might be outta luck.

    i spilled rum on mine which fried the mainboard for good. if it was wet when you tried turning it on id say your in trouble. if its a somewhat new laptop, try to find some sort of accidental damage protection. you can buy it then wait a few weeks and call in your mishap, thats what the compaq tech support recommended me. it would have been $698 without the plan but it only turned out to be 99 dollars with the plan so i definitly recommend this!

    open the thing up as far as you can and let it dry out for a few days

    hope you can resurrect it

    My brother let his mobile phone fall in the toilet a couple of weeks ago. He let it dry out for a day or 2, but it didn't work. My dad had spilled some water over his laptop while it was on, didn't do anything to that thing. He just turned it off and let it dry for a couple of days, and it was good to go again.

    If you dont clean up a liquid spill asap, corrosion starts to eat the PCB and gets worse and worse. If the machine was on when it spilt then that could have caused permenant damage.

    If you do get it working again, it may run for a few weeks, but it will eventually need to be repaired.
