    Hello friends :)

    About 2 weeks ago I accidentally spilt water all over my MacBook, I immediately unplugged the charger and switched the laptop off. I put the laptop next to the window, then after a couple of hours I removed the bottom cover just to air everything out using a hair dryer. After this process I decided to turn it on and see what happens. The screen, keyboard and trackpad all did not work at first, I connected the MacBook to a screen, mouse and keyboard and I was able to use it as a normal desktop. A few days later I thought to myself maybe the screen works now, soi tried using it and it actually worked as well as the mouse and keyboard. I was happy! Then the MacBook decides to become captain **** face and I have to go back to using it as a desktop. So now this is what's happening, the laptops basically a desktop with a screen, mouse and keyboard. But please note that on random occasions the laptop keyboard and mouse work and that when I switch on the laptop, the laptop screen lights up displaying the apple logo then it suddenly shuts off and I have to connect it to the external screen. All the laptop components appear to be functional but I can't get them to work properly.

    I know this is a long post but if you're this far would you please be able to help me solve this issue? Thank you very much! :D
