Laptop monitor out afte spill

\015 I have a gateway laptop 14'' model t-6330u. I spilled a drink on the keyboard and shut it off immediately. At start up the monitor was dim and fadding, and I heard a sissle under the keyboard. End result, backlight is completely out, but can see the screen if I put a light on the screen. And I connectd an external monitor which is working fine. What might have been distroyed?\015

Answers :

Could be a few things destroyed something on the motherboard or on one of the wires leading to the screen. if you heard a sizzle take the keyboard off and the wires for the screen are usually right there see if any are burnt and look for puffed up fuses.

Tip for next time if you get an electronic device wet remove battery dry completely before putting battery back in
