I left my room and when I came back my mac was on and open and there was urine on it. It was trying to connect to a wireless keyboard. I cleaned off the urine and restarted the mac but the trackpad doesn't work so 2 days later I connected a wired mouse to it and it worked for the most part but it at times it

I left my room and when I came back my mac was on and open and there was urine on it. It was trying to connect to a wireless keyboard. I cleaned off the urine and restarted the mac but the trackpad doesn't work so 2 days later I connected a wired mouse to it and it worked for the most part but it at times it wouldn't work and would go back and forth on the mac screen even though I wasn't touching the mouse. It also is really loud and whenever I turn it on and sounds like an oscillating heater. Please help

Apple will change out the motherboard for a price about $900.. Take it to an independent apple repairer who can do board level repairs. Urine will have caused significant corrosion to components tracks etc. this must be repaired and the corrosion cleaned off. If the damage is too bad then the board is unrecoverable

If you have household insurance accidental damage you may be able to claim, but it sounds as though your laptop is now an expensive paperweight.

The correct action is not to attempt to turn it on, remove the battery, take to a tech ASAP. Drying it out is a myth this just leaves the corrosion on the board

The first thing you need to do is get your dog trained! Then…take the computer into a local computer repair shop and get and estimate on repairing the computer. And by the way, never try to start or continue operating a computer that's been "moistened" by any amount of anything! Shut it down and get it dried up for a few days before you try it.

Ruined. You turned on a wet electronic device – which is the quickest way to fry it! You should have put it into the airing cupboard for 4 days to properly dry out.

Give him a rib eye steak for being a smart dog.

Thank your dog then stop buying apple products!
