Spilled 1/2 a cup of water on my laptop. It is now sitting on it's side on kitchen paper and it is also dead. Help!

Been there done that. Take the keyboard off as quick as you can and get the hairdryer in there. NOW. Take out the Bat and any drives and RAM and processor if it comes out. Leave it overnight and you might be lucky.....

Water's not expensive these days. :-)

As spikeychris. We assume it was switched on at the time? If not, there's a better chance of 'getting away with it'.

Also done similar....

Try to leave the Laptop in a warm place overnight ie Top of your Television, Airing Cupboard, radiator.....

There is a good chance that when it is TOTALLY dry that it will work again.

I've spilt coffee and tea over mine in the past - as long as you dont have sugar in it , seems to work OK when dry!
