If you want to try to fix your Mac put it in rice, from my own experience this works great. As for your instance put it in rice for a week and then take the computer apart your self and don't plug it in again that could fry it. Follow this guide on how to take your Mac apart. You will want to get 90% isopropyl rubbing alcohol and with a Q-Tip rub it on all of the connectors and the logic board to remove the corrosion and other minerals. The corrosion and minerals that got stuck and corroded the connectors would prevent the device from working. Over the summer my iPhone got wet and I followed this guide on the iFix it and the rubbing alcohol worked! It turned on and is fully functional.I know the guide is for an iPhone but the same priceable applies. Just don't submerge your logic board in the rubbing alcohol since it is hard to tell if it is dried out before you put it back together. Wait about an hour before your reassemble your Mac and make sure that everything is 100% dry before your put it back together and turn it on. I wouldn't recommend you rub the rubbing alcohol on the screen either. It might seem like a bad idea to rub rubbing alcohol on your Mac, but since it evaporates so quickly it won't harm your Mac, along as you are careful. Also know that taking your Mac apart will void Apple Care.

Uncooked rice as an emergency desiccant works well. You must change it frequently and keep your device enclosed in a container of some sort, but contrary to movies and television rice can only dry out wet devices, it can not magically repair shorted or burned up components.

Yes, that is correct. Over the summer my Lifeproof case failed and my iPhone got wet, so I stuck it in a bag of rice and followed the how to repair a water damaged iPhone guide and it worked! My iPhone is still working today.

Rice has its limits! I strongly recommend taking out the batteries (disconnecting them) ASAP! then I recommend placing the device in as cool a place as possible (don't freeze!) to slow down the corrosive effect of the lake/river/sea water. Disassemble and rinse off the parts in distilled water (yes! distilled) unlike your lake/river/sea water distilled water does not corrode as it does not have minerals in it. Even still don't soak the parts just rinse. Then use reagent grade Isopropyl alcohol 85% or better to then pull the water out and act as a drier.

The first thing you need to do is going to try your external drive on different computer to see if the drive can be read by them. If yes, back up the files you store on your external drive to the computer first. If not, you need to take your external drive to fix at once.

Maybe you will ask if you fix the external drive, will the files are gone forever? Yes, they will be gone, but not forever. Actually, after fixing the external drive, the files seem to be deleted, but in fact, the operating only delete the catalog and the space of these files so that there is enough space for you to store new files.At this moment, you still have chance to get your files back.

But if you put any new files into the external drive, the new files will occupy the space of the"deleted files", this is the so-called data overwritten situation.Once this happens, you may lose the chance to get the files back.
