Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook ?

Spilled soda on it, screen doesn't work now...

\015 I spilled about a teaspoon of soda on my laptop on the edge of it and it leaked in throught the vent on the side and got on my motherboard and under my wireless card and my modem card/thingy. I opened it up and let it dry out and this fixed the problem of my computer not turning on... but it works fine now-- just no picture on my screen... when I hook up a monitor to it it works great, not slow or anything, just no picture on my screen on the laptop! I don't know what to do now or what might be wrong with it... it's a Inspiron E1705... there isn't a category for this one, or at least I didn't find one... Thanks for your help!\015
