The race is back!
I'd love to offer suggestions, but every time I try to type something, I just think "soy latte" and vomit a little in the back of my mouth.
phat's got the best suggestion: bring it to your local computer guys, and let them tell you how bad the damage is. A spill is something that's hard to diagnose over the internet.

Oh man, GG.. I feel your pain. I fried my laptop about one year ago when I spilled an entire coke onto the keyboard. I took it in to a computer fix it shop, and he said the motha board was fried. I could either get it fixed ($950), or buy a brand new, fancy-smancy PC ($1,200). INeedless to say, no longer have a laptop, and I've already ruined three keyboards since then (but they're only like $20 to replace)
I hope that everything works out ok for you GG.

I spilled water on my keyboard multiple times. Just turn it upside down, wipe it with paper towels and let it dry a bit. Volia!
I feel for you GG . I posted in the other thread about the durability of my Dell laptop to stand up to my son spilling my full coffee (double double) on my laptop. I just laid it out flat upside down right away on a towel . It drained out and worked ok. I always use baby wipes to clean up sticky keys / mouses .
Don't know what they put in those things , but still I use them all over the house many years after there were any diapers in the house.
Thanks ya'll...and eny, your story makes me feel better. The keyboard on this laptop pops right after you loosen a couple screws. It's been doused in warm and cold water and is upside drying as we speak.
Per the link someone posted about, I'm not going to even try to turn on my laptop again for 72 hours. I have my work laptop and that'll do for the next couple days.
Cross your fingers and I'll keep ya'll posted!
Weeeeeeeeee...if anyone cares, my laptop recovered from the soy latte incident!! I waited the requisite 72 hours, put it back together and VOILA!!
Thanks to everyone who gave my advice...it worked!
WooHoo! Glad it all worked out GrammerGoddess
