    Water On Macbook Pro
    I was washing dishes last night, had a skillet in my hand with a small amount of water on the bottom, turned, and some water went on the keyboard of my Macbook Pro. When it got on the keyboard it didn't turn off or anything, and kept playing music. I took a rag, wiped it off, and then powered it down. After about 3 minutes of waiting I turned it back on, logged in, and went to play music again but the keyboard was acting funny. So I turned it off again, took off the back, unplugged the battery, and let it dry out overnight. This morning I plugged the battery in, put the back on, plugged in the charger (green light was on), but it would not turn on.

    Now I don't know what to do. Any suggestions?

    We're not trying to tell you anything. That's why we refer you to the Sticky Post so you can get some idea of what to do and then draw your own conclusions.

    Time will tell regarding the screwed business. If it works great and keep fingers crossed after following suggestions in the sticky.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
