Coffee and cream on keyboard - black screen and beep
Child spilled coffee (with cream) on my keyboard but I was able to dab it up fast and felt like I cleaned it adequately. Several hours later opened lid to have grayed box saying "power down", I did. Now when I try to power up it just beeps; beep-pause-beep-pause-beep... continuously, NOT three beeps.
I disassembled to see if any liquid was inside and nothing there - dry and clean.
Was hoping the de/reassembling would "jiggle" problem gone but still get beeps and black display.
Ideas on what went wrong (other than hurting it's feelings by not pampering it after the spill...)
Unplug it and remove the battery. Get the topcase off ASAP, turn it upside down on some paper towels and forget it for a week to let it dry. Inspect the logic board for any sign of damage. Here's how to get the top case off: MacBook Core Duo Upper Case Replacement
