So, I spilled a drink on my laptop.  A couple days later, it turned back on.  It asks me if I want to Launch Startup Repair or Start Windows normally.  If I go to the startup repair, it gets nowhere.  If I start windows normally, it just stays on the Starting Windows screen forever.  At first, it was letting me go into safe mode, but not anymore.  When I try that, it just goes to a blank screen and stays there.  I ran a diagnostics disc that came with the computer, and all the hardware is fine.  What do I do?  I don't care if the computer has to be restored to factory settings.  I just want to fix it.  I don't have a Windows Recovery Disc, though.  I'm using Windows 7 on a Dell Latitude E6500.
