Question about Computers & Internet
Alright, the problem is obviouse, Imasuming you have turned it off.
Remove keyboard, usually you have to pop off the plastic bracket and remove a couple screws underneath or on the bottom of laptop to remove keyboard.
Soak up any water or moisture.
Leave the keyboard off for a couple of days in a dry place as well as the laptop.
Remove the battery as well.
If the laptop didnt short out when the water fell on it, then theres a good chance its alright once you dry everything out.
After 3 days or so, and you know its all dry, put back together and give it a try.
If it shorted out when the water fell on it, then the laptop is probably a gonner. You should be able to salvage the Hard drive, RAM and CD Drives.
The mother board is what would go out if water shorted it, you may be able to replace the mother board and it may work fine. It up to you if yo want to try.

Put it in a warm and dry place for a few days. If that doesn't help open the Laptop and clean and dry it out as much as you can. Here's a guide on how to disassemble a Laptop. Maybe a tech savy friend can do it for you. If you want to pay to have a service do it for you there are third party Repair Services.
