I have a HP Pavilion DV7. About 5 days ago I spilled a pretty good amount of water right onto the keyboard and speaker area.
I realize there is a ton I should have done when it initially happened but I wasn't aware of these things and to busy with college to do anything, so pretty much all that I did was dry it up, didn't even bother to shut off my computer (I realize I broke rule #1 there). However I did get it all dried up off the keyboard within 15 seconds.
Since then I have done nothing to my computer and it runs fine, all the keys work fine, speakers work fine etc.
However since I spilled straight tap water I am wondering if the minerals in the water will be enough to corrode my motherboard?
Also, I saw some things on the internet saying some newer laptops have keyboards that are supposed to drain water and make sure none gets to more internal hardware. Any chance mine has that?
Pretty much, I am wondering if it worth tearing apart a completely good computer to clean the motherboard or is there anything else I should do or should I just cross my fingers and hope for the best?
