My friend spilled beer on my laptop last night.
I immediately shut it off and laid it upside down to dry out. I tried it out this afternoon and it was working fine for about an hour. I shut it down because I felt it getting hot and now that some time has passed and it's cooled off, I'm getting no response when trying to turn it on.
I've researched and know some friends who could clean it with alcohol but I'm just wondering if that will work or if I more than likely fried it when I thought it was fine this morning.
I'm fully aware I ruined my Apple warranty and it's going to cost about $700 to get it back to that. Is it worth opening it up and further destroying any chance of using my warranty to avoid spending $700 that I don't have or should I just start saving?
I'm a graphic artist and I do animations and projections, a lot of work is ahead of me for the end of the summer and really just need some sure fire solution.
