Have you let it dry out??

Depending on how bad it was and where it got to, it may be able to be cleaned.

Dell service manuals are available on their site. I disassembled my M1710 last week with the step by step instructions from Dell's site.

You think it's dry. You need to open it up and make sure all the water is actually out of it. A blow dryer will help dry everything out. I have several laptops that have experiences drinking a few beers and they all lived. Don't try to turn it on again until you can be sure it's all dried out.

Did you hear any pops or smell anything after the water was on it?

Also, on top of leaving it off and taking it apart to dry it off. Unplug it and remove the damned battery. Electronics common sense.
