Just posting this to confirm my suspicions and gain any helpful advice. Got a laptop from a colleague that had been left by an open window. UK has had some fairly wet weather so inevitably some water got on the laptop. They tried using a hair dryer at the vents to remove any moisture, but it's developed a problem. When turning on the power, it gets past POST and at the point where it starts to load the OS, it suddenly cuts all power. This is roughly 5 or 6 seconds after initially turning it on. After that, no matter what you try, it won't turn on. No fans, no lights, nothing. Unplug and replug the charger, with or without the battery, nothing. After leaving it off the charger for a few hours, plugging it back in and it'll turn on, but a few seconds after it shuts down and the problem repeats. I think water damage, short circuit, etc. Any help?
