It's probably hopeless but I figured I'd give it a shot. I've got a year-old Toshiba laptop, a Satellite M45-S265. I was an idiot a couple days ago and spilled water on the keyboard, so I unplugged it, took out the battery and set it upside-down and left it alone until today, basically, when I called a computer tech service guy in to take a look at it. So he got here and it booted up okay, no real problems apart from some key sticking with the keyboard... then he opened it up to look to see if there's any internal damage, didn't see anything. Then he reassembled it, and now it won't turn on. The blue connection light comes on when I connect the power source, but when I press the 'on' button, nothing happens at all.
I'm wondering what could possibly be up, and if there's anything I can do. As far as I can tell, he didn't actually do anything to it that would mess up its insides - he just looked at it. There was some dust in there and it's still there since I didn't have any canned air to get rid of it, but that was it. He said there was a good chance that the water didn't actually get past the barrier between the keyboard and the machine's guts.
Any advice, or am I screwed?
