A week ago I stupidly split a small quantity of milk on my laptop's keyboard.
I followed common sense and now the laptop works... except the hard disk.
Booting a Live-CD works, but the hard disk is not shown.
Even if I plug the hard-disk into a hard-disk-to-USB device, it won't start spinning.
Could milk enter the hard disk, while leaving the rest of the laptop intact?
Would you suggest hiring a professional to get back the content of the disk (a few months' pictures, not the end of the world) ?
