Hi all,

I spilled a glass of water on my laptop. It turned itself off, I unplugged it, took it apart, and wiped up the visible water (there was not much at all inside the case). I then left the laptop to dry for several days.

Now, when I try to use my graphics card (discrete), my system quits and reboots. The integrated graphics work fine and everything else on the computer seems okay.

So, I am wondering if replacing the card would fix the problem or if it is possible that I have rendered the graphics end of the board inoperable.

Your experience, thoughts, ideas, or suspicions are most welcome! Thanks.
