Presuming that the water spilled on the actual pc, and it is no longer functioning whatsoever, you should contact the manufacturer (dell in your case) if you still have a warranty on it.

Spilled water on my dell insiron 1525 keyboard now when I hit a key it types two letters

Hi there,

Your keyboard has shorted out with the water damage. It can be easily replaced by buying one on eBay for probably less than $20 and using the Service Guide online at Dell Support I am posting right below.

I can replace the keyboard and check the inside of the computer for additional damage that may have occurred because of the spill.

Water spilled into my laptop Dell Latitude D600. what do i do

  1. Disconnect any power and remove the battery
  2. Tilt the system in various angles to drain as much of the water from the system as possible.
  3. Let the system dry for several days, (I'd say a minimum of 4) is a relatively warm place
  4. Insert Battery, see if system will power on.
If the system was powered on when the spill occurred and turned off by itself during the spill, then the motherboard has most likely been damaged and will need replacement. ($100 or so on EBay)
If the system will not power on after drying, you might consider replacement rather than repair as the cost of fixing it could exceed the replacement cost. (Dell has portables starting around $399)

Water spilled on my PC

Well as you said that the water was spilled on the system,so it might have damaged one or more of the component on the system.Eve if it feels that the system is dry now but the water might have gone inside,so you can call the tech support if you have a valid warranty and get the parts replaced or else contact a local tech who can check each part.
