Question about Computers & Internet
Remove all power sources and do not attempt to power up. Remove power cord, battery, and if it is easily accessible also CMOS battery (eg. desktop coin battery if we are talking about desktop).
If the screen is black, that is already symptom of failure. Leave unit to dry, possibly partly disassembled for at least two days. Do not try powering up until dry, or you will loose any already scarce hope for recovery.
If after that time the unit still does not show anything on display, then shorts and oxidation caused by water has damaged the unit. In that case try understanding if problem is display or main board.
If we are talking about a laptop use an external monitor.
