I spilled well-water on my laptop a few weeks ago and immediately removed the power adapter, battery and drained the energy from the motherboard. I then opened it up (as much as I could) to dry off what I was able to. My laptop is an Asus U57A and I am not entirely sure how to open it up beyond accessing the basics (RAM, Hard Drive, etc.). Even when I think I've gotten every screw, the casing doesn't seem to want to come off and I haven't been able to find anything online about opening this machine. The problem is that after one week of allowing the laptop to dry with good airflow (standing upside-down on a wooden desk with a fan blowing), I turned it on to see if it would work. It worked just fine for about ten minutes, and then the backlight started flickering like crazy and went out completely. At the moment I am getting around the problem by connecting it to an old desktop screen I had lying around, but I originally purchased this laptop for use at school. Any ideas on if I could fix this? It definitely doesn't have a warranty anymore so I wouldn't be able to send it in or anything like that.
