First of all I'd like to precise that before this incident I had never put any liquid near my laptop. But this is a long story anyways,important part is that my cat ended up spilling water on my laptop that was powered on at the time. Of course right when it happened I powered off the laptop. Cleaned-up most of the water. I am not a laptop expert and I realize now how stupid this sound, but I actually turned on the power button a few minutes after the incident, just after cleaning most of the water I could see. I was not thinking straight I guess, too much in panic and really tired. The laptop did turn on for a few seconds then shut down by itself. I didn't have time to access anything. I tried to turn it on a few times after that again. Didn't work. Stupid decisions, but whats done is done. After a few tries I searched on the internet for help with my parents laptop and followed the instruction which were to leave my laptop alone for at least a few days and take the battery out. I realized that turning back on my laptop right after the incident was a bad thing to do so I left my laptop alone for 2 weeks. So today which is 2 weeks later, I decided to finally power on my laptop. I put the battery back in and it worked! Everything except for the keyboard where most keys were messed up and acting weird. But everything else was fine. I was so happy and immediately started saving all my important files in case it were to crash again soon. Well it did. About an hour later after saving up some files the laptop shut down by itself. No warning, nothing. I assumed it was because it wasn't plugged in so I did that and after a few minutes the battery lights on the laptop went from orange to green. I tried to turn it on many times, unplugged it, took the battery out, put it back in, etc. I tried pretty much everything! No luck! When plugged in with the battery, the battery light on the laptop is green. But when I take out only the battery, there is no light. No light also just the battery, not plugged in. There aren't any other light.
My laptop is an ASUS that runs Windows 8. If u need more info let me know.
Anyone know whats up with my laptop? Any chances I can still save my files from the hard drive? Thank you so much for any help!
