VAIO wet Hi, it may seem stupid... but my cat knocked over a coke on a nearby table as my laptop and it got it a little wet on the upper right hand side and maybe the same area keyboard where the power button is. It shut down by itself about 1 minute later. There was not a lot of coke, but l am scared as this laptop is my life. l have a VAIO VGN-FE855E if that in any way helps... l let it dry and l was thinking of trying to restart it tomorrow... Please don't laugh at me... and also PLEASE give me some good news...? If it helps, SONY is a good company as 3 years ago l got thrown into a pool with my mini disk player (so that one really got wet) and after letting it dry for about 4 days it worked again...? It still works... l know laptops are more fragile... but please!!!!

    ok, it's been 24 hr now... and l re-screwed all the screws...

    l was not able to take off the back cover, but l hope that l was able to at least let it "breathe"...?

    should l try and power it up again or wait longer?... especially since
    it's coke, l am very worried because of the sugar in it...

    l started an experiment and placed a drop of coke on a piece of plastic
    just like the laptop and see when it dries... it's still sticky...

    if it would be the same inside... should l wait until it's all dried up...?

I would wait in till it's dry it would be the safest thing to do. Though as long as it didn't sink to deep into your computer it will be fine unless some hardware got wet, then it would cause problems and you would need to replace those parts. Good luck.
