I have had my Macbook for about a month now. Last night a friend spilled wine onto my computer when I was out of the room. I don't know how much got onto the keyboard, but when I took the battery out, there was liquid in that compartment. I left it battery-less and unplugged for 12 hours. This morning I fired it up, and it wouldn't start without the power chord attached. I am currently running the computer without the battery inside (as it doesn't seem to make a difference). For the most part, everything seems to be functioning properly when plugged directly into a power source with one exception: The computer will only run for a few minutes before shutting off. One other note: I haven't heard the computers fan functioning since the accident. Final note: I am oversee's for the next two months. This poses two problems. I am currently in Austria, and my German is basic at best. I don't know of any apple stores here, and if I did find someone to service the computer, I might not be able to communicate very well with them unless they speak English. Also, the computer is my primary means of communication with my family and girlfriend back at home. I also use it for homework, updating my website, planning my trip, etc etc etc. I know everyone has spills, but I haven't heard of one that occurred outside of the owners home country. What should I do? I am a graduating college student (The computer was a graduation gift), with few financial resources. While it might be expensive for me to fix, it will be even worse to be computer-less. I don't want to cause any extra damage. What should I look into doing? Should I neglect to mention the spill if I bring the computer in? Where should I bring it? What components need to be replaced? The files on this computer are irreplaceable. I have been storing all my trips pictures on the laptop. Are these files salvageable if the computer calls it quits? Is it bad for the computer to continue to use it for emergencies? I got the extended warranty from apple. Is this useless in situations like this? Did I essentially throw that warranty out the window? Thank you so much for your time. I apologize for the frantic post, but I don't know what I need to do.
