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....

Sounds like its shorted the backlight of the lcd. If it has it will be quite expensive to repair. Definetly a contents insurance issue, hope your with AMI :)..
Slightly off topic.. did anyone see the toshiba sat pro at the Ingram tech show a couple of months back, that had the aquarium draining onto the keyboard while the laptop was running?.. quite impressive.. now thats a spill proof keyboard! Dosn't help that my work mate was trying to divert the water into the headphone port though Undecided.. haha
