It sounds like some of the moisture has entered the laptop and caused problems. First of all take the battery out of the laptop immediately and power it down, make sure you do not try to power it up until you have attempted to dry the unit. I would recommend covering any holes/vents in the chassis of the laptop with masking tape and placing it in some kind of storage container buried in dry uncooked rice for at least 24 hours. Hopefully this will draw any moisture from the laptop and prevent further problems. In the meantime, if you are desperate to access the files you might want to extract your hard disk and connect it to another computer. I wouldn't recommend this if it can be avoided, as it will require moving the laptop around which may help work moisture further into the system, the moisture could also be affecting the hard disk, if it is and you attempt to power it you risk losing your data forever.

SOURCE: My Compaq Presario C500T lap top won't start

Generally speaking, an orange power light indicates problems with the power. You also described to a "T" how a bad battery behaves. To test this theory, take out the battery and plug in the laptop. It should power up and run. If so, it's time to invest in a new battery.
To be doubly sure, if you have anyone with the same laptop as yourself, plug in their battery to your laptop. It should work if their battery is good.

Try powering up with no battery connected. If that works then the battery may be faulty or too old.

Go to Control Panel, (top right View Small Icons). Then look for Power Options. On this page, you'll have the option to leave the monitor on. You should also check "Advanced Power Options". Don't be afraid of the word, "Advanced." It only means "customizeable"

If your mouse isn't waking your monitor, try the keyboard's space bar. I found it works better than the mouse at waking a sleeping computer

Computer won't start


When the screen is black, try pressing Ctrl + Alt + Del; a soft reset should kick it back into gear. Did the laptop shut down unexpectedly due to power loss/overheating/etc..?
