Rice is the best method for water damage. Remove the battery and make sure it is fully submerged in the rice. Also, do not take the laptop out of the rice for a full 24 hours. I know it can be tempting to remove the laptop but the 24 hours will give it the full time needed to soak up any moisture. After the 24 hours, try powering on the laptop again.
