Aspire One Not Booting After Being Flooded

My aspire one is not booting after the floods in November last year. It has been given around 4 months to dry in a well aerated cupboard.

I took it out on Firday to see if it would work, so I got the charger and plugged it in. Miraculously, I got the charger light to come on, then it went off again. I gave the socket a blow, then tried again. It worked this time, giving a straight orange light. I pressed the on button, and it went green. The screenn gave a quick flicker, then the machine went dead again. This is all I can do. Any ideas?

Suggestions will be brill,
