My wife spilled a "splash" of water into our laptop yesterday...:mad: :mad: :mad:

Accidents happen...but what a miserable start it's been to the new year.:( :(

let it completely dry out before turning it on/plugging it in.

Taking off the battery will help too.

I've heard bathing it in rice is good for getting moisture out of electronics.

Here's some info on it... (http://forum.purseblog.com/general-discussion/the-rice-trick-how-save-electronics-get-wet-421109.html)

yeah, rice has amazing absorption powers. thats why restaurants put them in salt shakers.
