Question about Apple Computers & Internet
All you can do if you know what you are doing is open it up and dry it out best you can..and hope for the best.
if it was on at the time there you are in trouble.
even if apple got it back i dont think it would do much good.
have you tried drying it out with a hairdryer or put it on a hot radiator .

SOURCE: Macbook Leaking
This is a quite common problem.
This liquid is a coolant, when the mac works for many hours & heats up the coolant will start leaking out, it's not battery acid.
You better head to your dealer, I don't know what Apple are doing about it, but I sure hope they'll fix it.

SOURCE: Macbook screen messed up
Yep, I understand your concern.
The cheapest and quickest way is to get an external monitor.
You can pick up flat LCDs very cheaply these days. Even second hand ones on ebay.
The only down side is you cannot use the mac on the move.
I for instance have a monitor at work and at home. I just plug my mac into the monitor where ever I am.
The new monitors come with digital cables.

If you get the Apple logo with spinning lines underneath it but not getting past this stage then the hard disc is being seen but something is failing in the boot process, causing it to stall.
Most likely this is a case of incorrect file permissions which is easily solved.
There are 2 ways of doing it, depending on whether you have an OS X install disc to hand or not.
IF YOU DO HAVE AN OS X INSTALL DISC:
Insert the disc into the DVD drive, power on the Mac on after hearing the chime hold down the C key. This forces the Mac to boot from the DVD. After a few minutes you'll get a screen asking which language you wish to use as the main language; select English or whichever is appropriate for you.
On the next screen the Installer box will appear. Ignore this and instead on the menu at the top of the screen select Utilities -> Disc Utility. Once this has loaded select your hard drive on the left hand pane and then first click "Repair Disc" and once that has finished click "Repair Permissions".
Once these have completed successfully reboot and OS X should load up fine.
IF YOU DON'T HAVE AN OS X INSTALL DISC:
This is a bit more tricky. You have to boot into single user mode. To do this power on the machine, and after the chime hold down Cmd (Apple key) and S together. The screen will turn black and an a load of white text will start appearing and scrolling upward as the system loads. Basically this is what happens behind the Apple startup logo, only in single user mode rather than multiple user mode.
After a few moments the text should stop scrolling and you should see a prompt which looks similar to:
localhost: / root#:
Note that localhost is the name of your computer so will possibly be different to "localhost". At this point type the following EXACTLY including spaces, capitalisation and dashes etc:
now press enter, then type:
/sbin/mount -uw /
now press enter then type:
diskutil repairPermissions /
and press enter. It may take a few minutes to repair the disc's permissions, but once complete you should have the
localhost: / root#:
prompt again. Now type:
and hit enter. The system will then reboot and should boot into OS X without issue.

SOURCE: Coffee spilled on my Macbook
Hi. Was your macbook open at the time? If os, then the beverage may have gone deeply into the machine. There is some protection from a bit of the elements under the keyboard, but not waterproof protection. also speaker areas and between where the monitor meets the frame. Also the battery compartment and memory compartment are breachable as well. The service center will probably know moisture to a large degree has entered the chassis of your computer. I said probably because it obviously damaged the computer, hence the need for a service center. Coffee gets in there and really can create a problem. Especially if there was mild and sugar in it. Good luck to you. It may be OK. Pretty sure your hard drive is at least.
