One of my co-workers came to me this afternoon with his notebook in his hands and a long look on his face. Seems he had emptied a full glass of Coca-Cola in his notebook (regular, not diet). He grabbed the NB and poured the excess into a trash can, but the computer went into immediate shutdown. He said it showed a Windows message saying the system was shutting down a second before it went off, so it didn't just immediately fry. I removed the keyboard and have a fan blowing on the motherboard and the KB. I'll leave that running overnight and try to start it up tomorrow. Anyone have any experience and/or suggestions? I've heard both good and bad. I took the HD out and it doesn't appear to have gotten wet so I think his data is OK. He had just done a backup yesterday (he got religion after his last crash).
