Sounds daft cause you have probably tried already, but have you re-synced the controller?
1. Turn on the controller
2. Turn on the console
3. Press the sync up button on the console
4. Press the sync up button on the controller

Hello so I spilled water on my laptop the other night however I took the power out and I turned it upside down and drained the water out In the morning when I went to start it it turned on for a sec then...


It would have been better to leave the computer sit for few days without Turning it ON.
It is possible that the laptop wasn't completely dry and that would have resulted in a short circuit of some part/component inside the laptop.
Try taking out the battery (unplug the power cord too) and try turning it ON again in few days.
If nothing works you need to get the system serviced/checked by a Tech.

Let me know what happens

My controller wont turn on without the charger cord

If you are using a rechargeable battery and it hasn't been used for a year it is possible that it is not holding a charge anymore. You may have to buy a new rechargeable battery. A good way to test that there is nothing wrong with the controller is to throw some AA batteries in there to make sure. If the controller works fine with two AA batteries then you know that you most likely need new rechargeable batteries. If it doesn't work you have have a bigger problem with the controller or the cord, but I doubt that there is a problem with the controller.
