Always a good idea to backup data. You can't do that often enough.

I would power it up with just the battery first. Which makes me wonder: did you remove the battery to check for moisture in that compartment? You can dab that dry with a terrycloth towel.

There was no moisture. I'm just worried it has no power left since it has not been charged for 2 months. The AC adapter and the port on the laptop for it did not get wet because it is on the right side, where no water got to.
But I guess I shouldn't try to argue, when you are trying to help.
I'll just have to wait and see and hope for the best.

Sounds like it's time to power that thing up and see.

I'll give it two more days just in case. Because it's always better safe than sorry!

A good way to dry out electronics that have gotten wet is to use rice. Simply put the item into a bag of rice and leave it for a few hours to a few days, depending on what it is.

If it has little vent holes like a laptop does, you obviously don't want rice in them, so wrap the item in some cloth, like a pillow case, and stuff it in a bag. Pour in some rice and seal or tie the bag shut and you're good in about 24 hours.

We do this at work. Sometimes stuff comes in from the field a little wet. It's an easy way to dry something out without resorting to heat guns or hair dryers.

I prefer silica packs but if you use rice, don't let it come in contact with the equipment. You'll have a sticky, gooey mess to clean up too.

Yes, you will. That's why you use a pillow case or cloth bag to put the item into.

Well, it seems it is not getting wet. I'm still going to wait another day though.
