RE: Getting shafted by laptop repair, computer experts please!
hmmmmm, if everything else is working then it MAY be that the water has damaged the modem, eg what is used to connect to the net!
if everything else is working 100% it seems a bit extreme to replace the entire laptop! if it is just the modem, just buy an external modem or USB adaptor etc etc. most systems dont use modems now anyway, use wireless etc etc
when you connect to the internet, does it connect correctly etc etc?
