I have a BIG problem. Some water has just fallen into my laptop and the usb ports don't work anymore. On debian there is this message: unable to enumerate usb device on port 1 unable to enumerate usb device on port 5 etc. Is any possibility to resurrect the usb ports? On windows, they don't work either. Maybe some heater?

Pro tip: Don't use your laptop outside in the rain. –  Cody Gray Jan 31 '11 at 11:15
    
You did turn the machine off immediately right ? then leave it for about 48 hours in a warm place ? –  Sirex Jan 31 '11 at 13:59

Never understood why all Notebook manufacturers don't design the keyboard area to prevent water intrusion to the interior of the notebook, some Lenovo models have this feature, liquids spilled on the keyboard drain out of the bottom of the notebook without getting inside. –  Moab Jan 31 '11 at 18:49
