Rooftop antenna just stopped working

So I've had this antenna for a couple of years, and sometimes during wind storms etc., the stations kind of go in and out. Well, anyway, a couple of days ago, only two stations (of about 15) were coming in. I went up on the roof to try adjusting it, but even after doing a new scan for stations on my TV, it won't pick up any stations at all. I've tried multiple adjustments, all with the same result. There was some water inside the boot where the coax hooks on to the antenna, so maybe that has something to do with it? I don't know. If you have any suggestions, let me know.

Never mind. I figured it out. I seems that I can't have my laptop plugged into the tv and have it still find stations. Who knew?
