Got my laptop - running Windows 7, well it was anyway - caught in a sudden deluge a few weeks ago - it was only out there for a minute and was still on and working. I dried it - perhaps doing more harm than good - and at first I could get it into safe mode but couldn't implement the fixes you fine folks provided me as my left mouse button and several keys weren't working. I was going to just replace the keyboard and touch pad assembly, but one of your esteemed colleagues on the hardware side of the house was optimistic, advising that I set it in a warm, dry spot to let it dry - had it there at least 10 days.
Current status - I tried booting it and got the screen with the option to launch the recovery tool - I chose that and the screen was navy blue for about a half an hour. Just for fun I rebooted and chose the resume Windows normally to see if I could at least get to safe mode. Welp, I've been staring at the Windows startup screen and logo for about a half an hour as well now.
Is this fixable or should I just hurl on to the burn pile and get a new machine? (I hope not the latter - I've been unemployed a loooonnnnggg time and couldn't afford it!)
Thanks in advance for your time and expertise!
