My son has an Apple Mac laptop, the computer was switched off and the lid was down. He knocked over a glass of water which ran over the top and down the back of the computer. He made the mistake of trying to start the computer soon after. It powered up at first but then the screen went blue. He left it for a few days but now when you try to power up, nothing, black screen, no hd lights, no power lights. Can anyone advise if this computer is ready for the trash or can it be salvaged? Have taken it to a repair shop but they were not interested in looking at it at all.

He needs his laptop for university, it would be great to get it up and running again as they are quite costly for a student.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance, Curley54.

Ready for the trash, especially if it was powered up while still wet.

It would have been nice if s0n had learned this lesson by killing a cell phone rather than an Apple

Personally, I think Apple products are ready for the trash even if they have not had a soaking. Sounds like s0n has the right idea. Get him a proper computer that uses Windows or (better) Linux and maybe he'll look after it.
