To make a long story short, my mother accidently whacked over a cup of water onto the top of a close powerbook in my dorm while visiting, which was pretty far away from said water. I was outside, and she, being unable to find me for the first few seconds, immediately wiped it down inside and out and set it aside. I have no idea if she plugged it in, and then came to find me after a minute of cleaning it. After I returned, I saw that it wasn't in any damage and my mom told me she cleaned it down, and tried to turn it on with no luck (battery inside). Realizing, she took the battery out, and plugging it in, trying to turn it on. I wasn't around for any of this, and when I got back, I nearly **** a brick. It's not my mom's fault, and I owe her so much that she could break it over my face and I'd be ok with it (plus I just dropped for a nice desktop so i'm not too upset). She says that while trying to find me she heard a humming and couldn't figure out what it was coming from (I guess she didn't think the water damage was so bad). Was that just the death rattle of my Powerbook? Did my mom just bust my PowerBook, or is there any hope? It's currently opened, turned on it's side, with a fan full blast going at it. I'm going to leave it there for four or so days, but i'm just sad that my Powerbook after two years may just be gone (and the money with it). Did my mom just kill my Powerbook? Or can I grasp onto some straws pleading for the Gods not to take my poor baby so soon? If so, what probably ate it? The Mobo? The CPU?
