Remove the harddrive asap !

Get yourself a 2.5 usb caddy and insert the drive to reclaim the data.

Or use an adaptor cable such as click here

You get a cable with the caddy. Blown Laptop claim on you Contents Insurance

Take the battery out and leave in a warm place, eg. airing cupboard,for a couple of days then try rebooting.
Damage to the electronics will happen if there's voltage.
This will cause corrosion.
If there's no voltage, it's just wet.

Caddies come with the required leads.

The usb adaptor is very handy as this does sata drives also and mains powered (no caddy needed).Not all caddies are mains powered (some just usb powered).
