The notebook is a Dell XPS M170. He tells me he spilled "a little bit" of orange juice into the keyboard earlier this evening. He said he turned it off, wiped it off, and then tried to turn it back on and "it didn't work right". I'm not surprised. Anyway - I've not tried to turn it on. I've contacted Dell, but I didn't buy the accidental damage insurance (live and learn on that one with an 18 year old) so I'm to contact the Out of Warranty Repair Dept. tomorrow.
My question is: has anyone had experience with this sort of event and should I try to turn the computer back on or should I let it dry out and then try. Or should I just wait until tomorrow to see how many dollars I'm out? Any advice would be apreeciated (related to the computer not my son - I've a plan for him)
