About 2 months ago liquid spilled on my desk and the bottom of my new Samsung laptop was exposed to water. I waited 2 weeks before i tried to turn it back on without luck. However when its plugged into the charger the blue power light does come on. I am assuming the motherboard is dead and my warranty doesn't cover water/accidental damage. I am by no means a computer expert and I want to know weather I should have the motherboard replaced, or try and sell it for parts (Most sites price the battery alone at $80 -http://www.love-battery.com/product_detail.asp?ID=8740)
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!!!

Hi GB and :welcome:

Since you don't know conclusively it is the motherboard itself that is fried, I would not spend money on replacing it. I would take it to a shop and let them determine what exactly is wrong, then you can decide what the most economical course of action may be.
