Spilt water on closed laptop, what...
I have a month-old HP Spectre X360. Yesterday night, I spilt about 50mL of water on my desk, and some went in the top of my laptop on the side, and also pooled under it.
When I opened it up there was some water on the side of my screen as well has on the borders of the keyboard and next to the touchpad. I think there might have been some water actually on the edges of the touchpad but I'm not sure.
After mopping up the water, I turned it on, and then turned it off about twenty seconds later when I realised that I'm an idiot. I didn't unlock it but it turned on fine and the keyboard was working.
I left it open to dry over night.
My question is: what do I do now? Is there no point in letting it dry because I already turned it on and the damage has already been done? If not, how long do I dry it for?
Do I try turning it back on again at all? Or should I just rush it to the repair people so they can have a look at it/trying taking it apart myself?
