put it in the oven with the dorr open. My friend dropped his phone in a bucket of water, and it worked later after he dried it out completely. It wasnt on at all right?

Wait for a week, and just let it sit. Take out any loose compartments such as the battery, and let them air dry.

Don't use any heat. Could do more damage then good.

Just think of it this way. When it doubt, wait another day. You rather be patient then to have a fried notebook.

By the way, have a picture of it?

I can take one? But it doesn't look wet.

I don't have one when I dropped it.

more than a computer without a tiny pump

honestly, laptops can't even be overclocked, so why bother?
