I was out having a cigarette or something and my friend spilled some water on the coffee table. A few hours later i went to use my laptop, which was on the coffee table, and the screen just turned on to snow (like a tv with no picture would do). He said only a little water got on the top and he wiped it off and moved the LP off the table, and it was far too dry to really look like it had damage. Could it be the monitor that might have gotten water on the cable? Everything important is on there, all my random, car, and house pictures, aim conversations, documents like my resume and bill worksheets, etc... not to mention all my links to bill websites and yada yada. Do you think a computer shop could fix it long enough to transfer everything onto a flash drive/my desktop? The harddrive still turns on, the network card turns on, the computer itself turns on and the fan starts blowing when it gets hot even, just not the screen. I tried hooking up my old big ass CRT 17" monitor to it, but I can't turn it on without the laptop screen working. I honestly think it's just a huge coincidence though that he spilled water and it just died. It's been on nonstop for months at a time.
