Possible water or hard drive damage to Dell Inspiron 1000 Laptop

\015 I have a Dell Inspiron 1000 Laptop. My son spilled water across keyboard. It didn't seem like a large amount. I cleaned it up, then later the screen went to a blue shut down error screen. Now when I turn it on, I can hear it start up, but screen remains black and two of the four status lights glow green (the two on the right). Nothing else happens. I should note that the laptop has been running very slow for the last few weeks. I do run Malware and AVG weekly, with neither detecting anything (or than tracking cookies).\015
