hello are you there
Expert:  michelleclive replied 26 days ago.

Everything will work fine in case the liquid has gone into the keyboard the keyboard will fail and die slowly. This will take few days the problem will increase.

To avoid further electronic dies remove the battery unplug the ac adapter and do not use the laptop till the mouse pad is replaced.

will the mouse pad dry out
Customer: replied 26 days ago.
well thanks even though your answer was not worth 38.00
Expert:  michelleclive replied 26 days ago.

The mouse pad will dry off but the electronic part which controls the mouse pad is damaged due to liquid which has short circuit the panel.

Expert:  michelleclive replied 26 days ago.

I know its hard to accept but thats the true fact and the mouse pad will need a replacement. Don't use the computer till its replaced or else it will damage further other electronics parts like keyboard or the motherboard. Which will cost you much expensive to get it repaired.
