When you boot to the Vista CD/DVD choose fresh install and choose format in NTFS. Don't pick the quick format, pick the other on because it will also check your disk for errors and correct them if it can.

How to replace fan ?


I would recommend searching the brand and model of your laptop. If you need to find the fan, search 'Brand Model # fan' on Google (or your preferred parts site. For example 'Dell Vostro 1720 fan'. If you need the physical replacement instructions, then add 'replacement' or 'disassembly', such as 'Dell Vostro 1720 fan replacement' or 'Dell Vostro 1720 disassembly'. (I used a sample laptop model for these instructions; replace 'Dell Vostro 1720' with your laptop model.)

Spilt drink on inspiron 1720. after letting dry


Make sure you DO NOT plug in your lap top to the power out let. This could cause a shock.
You see the Dell media direct, means your CMOS is OK.
But if Windows is not loading means the spill could have damaged your hard drive. I would strongly suggest you take it to a shop where they repair laptops.
This way you may have to replace your hard drive, but save your note book.

Try using VLC player or Windows Media Player Classic.
You will also need to install CCCP to view them.
I looked at the Corel site, said you needed to download, at a price, WinDVD 9 Plus Blu-ray.
Hope this helps. That sucks you get a Blu-ray player and need to pay extra to view the movies. Typical.
Hope the alternative media players help.
