First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

The reconition code must have been wiped out, that can only happen if the ultility is agressive, It is far safer to erase the hard drive through more conventional methods, once you block any data from being retrieved so does the product identification. The only thing you can try is set bios factory default, "long shot at best"

Hi.

You can try cleaning the keyboard but the keyboard has to be removed first before you attempt to clean it. That hopefully will work, however please be aware that if the wine has gotten between the keyboard membrane then it could cause the keyboard to type other characters not assigned to them or others as well as their own when you reinstall the keyboard.

To clean the keyboard first we have to remove it. Turn the laptop off and close the lid, remove any AC power that's connected. Turn the laptop over and then take out the battery.
In the battery compartment remove the 2 screws holding the keyboard bezel down that are circled in the picture below. (the keyboard bezel is thin piece of plastic that runs the length of the laptop above the keyboard)

When the screws are removed turn the laptop back over, open the lid and carefully lift up the keyboard bezel and remove it from the laptop like in the picture below.

Next you have revmove the three screws securing the keyboard in place like in next picture.

Lift up the top side of the keyboard and rest it on the palm rest/touchpad. Be very careful as the keyboard is still connected to the motherboard like in this picture below.

Now you have to remove the keyboard. In order to remove the keyboard you'll have to unlock the connector and release the cable.
Look at the next picture and lift up the right side of the locking tab so it opens up at a 90 degree angle as shown and carefully pull away the ribbon cable

Lift the keyboard away from the laptop and then get a clean, warm, damp cloth and start to wipe the top of the keyboard. Don't try to remove the keys as you can damage the cradles and also they are very hard to put back on.
Keep on rinsing the cloth with clean warm water and wring it out a bit. Keep on repeating this until the keys release and become springy again.
Once you are happy with keyboard just reinstall the keyboard by reversing the steps above.

When you have re-assembled the laptop turn it on and open a notepad or text document and see if the keyboard is typing all the correct characters for the printed symbol. If some are not working or are typing multiple characterst then you will need to replace the keyboard. Click on the blue link below for an idea.

Hope this helps, good luck.

If the lap top does not turn on with the power supply supply unit plugged in you may consider getting another power supply unit for your laptop. The computer should still turn on with the power supply unit plugged in if it does not then this has stopped working and needs to be replaced. From what I have read in your question that is what I would do. Thanks for using FixYa John

May be a faulty wifi card.

But check Adapter settings in control panel to ensure wifi card is "enabled" and check device manager to ensure correct wifi driver is installed.

It may be stuck in hibernation. Just press and hold the power button for 8 seconds until it shuts down all the way. Power it back on and you should be good

I would say the laptop is done. You have given it more than enough time to dry out so you have shorted out something on the motherboard. Remove the hard drive so that you have access to the information stored on it. You can pick up a refurbished laptop from micro center for under 200.00.

The orange light means the battery is low.
Normally the clicking is the hdd trying to find its files and it will crash from time to time if faulty.
Replace the hdd.

Did you replace it with an identical part? Should work fine if you did. I would contact Toshiba tech services for guidance on this matter. Have you tried it with an external monitor?

When you say that the hard drive works I have to ask how you know. There are not many parts in a laptop that would make a clicking noise. One of them is the hard drive. Is there any display activity at all? Lights on the unit that come on?
