    Water Spill
    I own a 15" powerbook that just had water spilled near the rear of the computer close to the power connector. The computer will boot, but the screen flashes and then turns black. The boot sound can be heard for a second and then a buzzing/muffled tick comes from the left speaker area.
    I'm looking for anykind of helpful insight.
    Thanks.

    Turn the computer off.
    Powering on electronics when they are wet or have just had liquids applied to them is not the best thing to do.

    I'd leave it alone for at least a week, just to be safe. I spilled a vase of water near my brother's MacBook once. He didn't turn it on for a week. Finally turned it on, everything was just fine. JUST LET IT DRY, DON'T BE IMPATIENT!

    Good luck!
