Default Laptop help

Long story short, I spilled some water on my laptop.

I immediatly turned it off, got some paper towels and started drying it off. I took it in the bathroom and then put a hair dryer on the thing for a few mintues. I tried booting it back up, and it seems to boot up fine. I'll get into my login screen however, and the keyboard won't work.

I have it turned off, sitting open, hopefully letting whatever is left in that thing dry. I dunno if the keyboard will work again though. Like I said, it seems to run fine, but the keyboard wont work. I've heard stories of cell phones being dropped in pools, left to dry for a while, then being perfectly fine, so I'm optimistic, sort of.

Anybody have any advice?

You shorted out your keyboard. It's fucked.

Well at least it's still under warranty.

Warranty doesn't cover that kind of damage.

You can save a laptop if fluid gets to it...but you MUST shut the laptop off and remove the battery immediately.

I'd leave the laptop alone for like 4 or 5 hours and come back to see if the keyboard is still dead. Exo's probably right tho and you have shorted it out.

I'll tell them it was on a dresser next to a window and the window was open. It did storm here last night.

And I honestly don't know how to take the battery out of the thing.

But anywho....FUCKIN A! I just turned it back on, and tried again. The keyboard works! In fact, I'm on my baby right now. Talk about lucking the fuck out though.
