Default What is wrong with my laptop?

Ok so recently I had this problem that started about half a month ago. My CPU goes to 100 percent when I use a Screen Capture Software or Game Capture Software. What happens is the videos come out laggy and it records laggy. Also games that used to run flawlessly don't anymore. I ran a disk check and I completely reinstalled my orperatng system. There is only 2 things that I think might have made this happen. I had spilled a drink on my laptop so I opened it up and dried it out. It is a dual processor laptop but it shows both in task manager. I don't know if it fried something or maybe I bumped a cord. The second thing is I started using an external monitor. Just in case you were wondering I have a Dell Inspiron 1525. Thanks, Dillon.

Something spilled on the keyboard could have cause for something to be fried..

Is the laptop still under warranty, If so contact Dell and see what they can do...

No. What part do I need? Or is it pretty much done for it?

did you turn the laptop off straight away and pull the power and let it drain?
this is not necessarily the cause, having said that it could have done some damage. did you check out what service was taking all the resources and why can you and have you checked the processor and it's thermal levels. a replacement of the processor maybe needed or the Motherboard. however not at this stage what have you done so far to fix this problem.

Kind Regards
