Computer Trouble

I'm typing this from the King Fish's computer. I spilled 1/2 a glass of water on my computer keyboard. I'm not sure how much damage I did, but I am currently without a computer until it dries out completely. It's been 24 hours since this happened, and The King Fish is making me wait until it's been 48 hours before I turn it on and see if it works.

I can say that the screen shut off before I could get a paper towel to sop up the water. I immediately shut it down, and then 10 minutes later dh came down and said to unplug it. We took out the hard drive and it looks good. I think at least all my files are undamaged. I pulled off all the keys were the water spilled and took a cloth to dry any areas that were still wet. We also opened up the back to allow it to dry more thoroughly. The area it spilled was above the motherboard, so we have a 50-50 chance. I am praying that it works okay and that I didn't short circuit or damage anything.

I so don't need to be buying another laptop, or paying a huge fee to have ours fixed. I'll let you know tomorrow night if we skated through unscathed.....

I really hope it's okay! . . . something I'm always worried about, too . . . spilling at the computer . . .

Oh, I hope it is alright! We spilled just a very little water on our laptop. The keys still just a little, but everything else was fine. We had our desktop crash last summer without anything being spilled on it. I'm still hoping we can get things recovered from there. All our pictures were on there from Ryan and Brooke's graduations and such. I cried for awhile about that.
