  • All you can do is let it dry and try to turn it on later.

  • i'm sure it will turn on but i'm worried about it being wiped clean. my life is on that laptop. my resume, a novel i've been working on for a year, all my photos and videos, my portfolio...EVERYTHING....i can't lose all that stuff

  • My LO spilled a whole glass of water on mine. I quickly dried it off and waited for it to be completely dry... 36 hours. Then I turned it on and by some miracle it worked. A few of my buttons stuck for a while, but they got better and now it works like normal.


     


    All you can do is wait and see

  • I doubt it. Pop is sticky and acidic. It will leave a residue. I would take it to a computer repair center. Somewhere they could take it apart and clean it.
