http://askubuntu.com – Today I spilled a cup of ginger ale on the computer I turned it upside down and wiped all the liquid off. I put it on an air conditioner at my work and after about an hour I turned it back on the screen was on but the color was blue. The screen would NOT turn back on after that. The computer would power up and the keyboard would light up but there was no reaction from the screen. I turned it off and kept it upside down, hoping to drain all the water out, and now when I try to turn it on the screen flickers (a bit of an improvement) any advice? (HowTos)
