Default Mini9 cuts out after plugging in AC power - 12-19-2009, 11:35 AM

Hi, I recently spilled some tea on the keyboard of my dell mini 9, only a very small amount but afterwards I could not switch on my laptop. I dissasembled it and wiped up some tea from the motherboard and left it to dry out for a couple of days and now it will turn on on battery power but if I plug in the AC power it cuts out after about 3 or 4 seconds.

Does anyone know where to look for damage to the motherboard of if any of the components (inc. battery, charger power supply) could be changed to try and fix it?

Thanks in adv

I don't have any guidance. So, I'll just wish you luck.
