I think that is mission impossible and would place a bet that you will change screen in few months. You can try not to use, get the battery out and keep it on some dry and worm place for example near radiator for few days.  Maybe someone has better idea. I seen similar problem but with juice , screen never died but the stain on screen left for months.

Nooo, don't put it near a radiator of any sort, being too close to constant heat can actually do permanent damage to the laptop

Probably have to replace the screen. Even if you figured out how to tear it down that much, you're not supposed to take apart the actual screen, and I guess if you figured out how it would just destroy it even more.

Well...how much water are you talking about?  Is it actual water or just fog?

 

I recently dropped my /mp3 player is some water and the result was condensation on the inside of the screen.  I decided to try heating the oven (300 degrees) and then turning off the burners and placing the player in the oven for about 5 minutes.  Cleared up the condensation.

Great, good job!   Must have not been as far into the screen as I was thinking. I saw it once where the water was in with the liquid crystals (i guess that's what it is) and it was displacing them lol, like, totally ruined it.
