Hi, my fiance's cat knocked a glass of water on the laptop. I quickly grabbed it and pulled the plug about 5-7 seconds after it happened. I took it apart and let it dry for a day, put it back together and booted for me (after some complications, but i forget what they were). I messed around a bit and i can now get into my laptop with 2 issues, 1 bigger then the other:
1. My biggest problem is when the main page loads i get a message about "installing device driver software" for the 6 PCI devices listed. I try and locate the device software and i can't load it (if anybody knows where exactly to find it I could try again, but no luck so far). This basically renders my USB portals all useless, and i can plug in my mouse and it lights up (showing it gets power), but i get a message about unknown device and can't get anything that previously worked through the USB drive to show up as an identified thing.
2. The other one is a weird one, but maybe it is a clue as to the other problem. My internet explorer has this annoying "Certificate error" on a lot of the pages i try to bring up. I tried messing with the internet options and nothing seemed to make a difference.
So any advice/comments would be much appreciated. I apologize if my issues are not articulated well, I am not very computer savvy. I look forward to any feedback/advice, thanks in advance
