crwdns2890332:0water is spilled straight into the back of the MacBook (fan)crwdne2890332:0OK, you did something dumb. Welcome to the club. We've all run across these things...especially those of us who fix them. Heck, I've done it to my 17" MacBook Pro and my wife accidentally left her near new MacBook in about 4 inches of spilled Egg Nog at the bottom of a backpack. Anyway, enough reminiscing. Here's the scoop...you may be s-o-l, but only maybe. It was good that you packed it in rice, but unless you took it apart there is probably moisture still hanging around. And even if it has dried up there may be hard water deposits left behind that form unique and unusual circuits. Here's the general procedure for anyone who has spilled anything on their laptop...you may have done any or all of these and good on ya if so: 1) As soon as you notice the spill immediately disconnect the power cord, remove the battery. Open the laptop halfway and turn it over...like a tent...on a dry cloth. leave it there for a couple of days. Any leftover water should drain out the front edge of the keyboard...hopefully away...
