Ok,  the computer will start up but it goes to a light blue screen that looks like light rays, and that's all it does.  I can get into the bios to run a memory test and it passes, but when I run the hard disk self test it freezes at 1% and then won't do anything after that and the computer has to be shut down cold.  I believe that at one point it was sat in some type of liquid because I had to clean it out of the battery compartment.  I need to know what other tests I can run to find out what might be wrong with this computer or if this compter can be salvaged? Thanks
