white chalky paste on Intel and Nvidia chips on my MBP 13
I have a MBP 13" Mid 2009 model, I spilled some red wine last week, but the laptop kept on working except few keys, but suddenly it stopped working, when I try to power up, I could hear the sound of fan and also i could see hard drive light, but didn't see anything on screen and not even that bing sound at bootup.
So I opened my MBP, and took out the logicboard, when I removed heatsink (I believe ), I saw the NVIDIA and Intel chips covered with white chalky paste, what is that stuff, Is it normal ?
Now I washed the board with 91% alcohol and soft brush, I plan to let it dry it out for 2 days and then re-assemble everything, what are my chances ?
Please help, I am not in a situation to buy a new MBP
Thanks a lot
