You could try drying the laptop keyboard using a hair dryer or use a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure there is no MOISTURE in the airlines make sure you have the battery disconnected when you dry it out and clean the terminals before you plug it back in
(dont get it to hot if you use a hair dryer do it a few times and let it cool down before drying it again)
hope this helps

My daughter spilled water on her nintendo dsi. I won't turn on

Let it dry for 2 days, DO NOT charge it, maybe it will turn on of the components get completely dry. If not take it to a service center there's not much to do.

Spilled water on it, now it wont turn on

Removed battery first. You should disassemble it to clean and wipe it dry. From bottom to top. Under its keyboard. Don't power it on until you are sure no water remains.

Hi there, dannie. Has anything happened recently that might have caused this issue such as a spilled drink or hard shock? Do any of the lights glow when you hit the lock buttons (CAPS Lock, Scroll Lock, etc)?

Water Spill on Dell E1505

Let it dry out for a few days in the Most moisture Free Place he can find. Two may be Three days to be safe, Then is should have dried out enough to work again, There pretty durable with spills, If its a newer E1505 It should have a spill protector under the keyboard. I think he should'nt have any trouble with it, If he just waits a few days everything should be fine
