    But, she has a PC so I poured the rest in!!!

    Just kidding - Just wanted to say a quick "thanks" to everyone - This topic has been covered so many times I didn't need to even search.

    We did what we could to disassemble and dry, and not turn on. This happened a few hours ago, so it will be days until we know the verdict.

    Sorry folks- You have possible helped save a PC!

    They do still make Fresca, but it took off more overseas than it ever really did here in the states.

    Just FYI, not to be the downer, but if moisture got on the Mother Board, its toast...no matter how long you let it dry, it still builds up corrosion, which eventually will make it where its not going to run. Back up what you can, and go get a new one. :(

    Well, her IT guy cloned her dive and then started it up and it worked.

    I think he should have waited longer (it was only 18 hours) but what do I know? I told the Mrs. to keep it open and not put it in the neoprene case when she travels home...
