About 6 hours ago, I spilled a 1/2 glass of water on my keyboard. Soon after the spill I tilted the laptop so that all of the water would drain out the corner. A lot came out, but not sure if it is all out. It also turned it off. It has been drying ever since.
I have an Inspirion which is only a month old....and this is not covered by my warranty. Called Dell and they suggest I send it in to be looked at and fixed....costly!!
happened to me once on a dell d620...I took out the keyboard and let it dry for about 2 days....assembled it back, and it was fine; not sure if the 2 days was excessive, but that worked for me. Next time I spilled a full glass of water, and tried the same method, and wasn't as lucky; thing died on me.

If you do a google search, plenty of stories of people who spilled water on their laptops....the main thing seems to be to take it apart if you can, and let it dry.
