I had kept the computer turned upside down with a paper towel on the keyboard, where most of the wine had gone. I had also opened the back and mopped up as much of the wine as I could.
|My first reaction was to do this.|
|Then I turned it upside down like this with a paper towel under the keyboard|
|Then I opened the back, removed the battery and the hard drive and dried under them|
A couple of days ago I was packing stuff away and I thought I would just try once more to fire it up again. As soon as I attached the power cord, the orange charge light came on. A miracle! The computer fired up as normal and all is well with the world.
