FIRST: wash your hands and touch your fridge or the metal cover of your sound system (for grounding yourself) -disconnect the laptop from everything -open it from beneath - CAREFULLY AND SLOWLY!! -find the screws that are holding the whole boards together -draw a script of where were the screws -separate each level from another -wipe all remaining drops or moisture from everything -leave it to dry -spry conductivity spry on the top level (beneath the keyboard) -assemble everything 2. for the Amateures FIRST: wash your hands and touch your fridge or the metal cover of your sound system (for grounding yourself) -disconnect the laptop from everything -put the laptop (in open position) on a radiator or anything that can produce low heat for day , make sure the heat is not too hot *****NOT MORE THEN 50 Celsius !!!!! ***** -pray to god that it would work good luck windman

You can also get spray cans of contact cleaner because they displace moisture and leave zero residue and spray the area down with this and leave it for about 1 hour

You can dunk it in rice to help wick away moisture. Some people have said to use an oven especially with small portable electronics and DO NOT. A small heater with some kind of shield in front works great so its not to intense.

This is going to sound stupid, but open your laptop and put it in a tub that has sides that are at least 3-4 inches above the top of the keyboard and fill with rice. The rice will draw the moisture out... Also works for cellphones that have been dropped in water! (Or in my case, gone through the washer....)

How to take apart my h-15 laptop

Do not like your chances of success in your endeavours. Was it switched on when you spilled the liquid in to the keyboard as damage of the short circuiting type is a real possibility.
Usually you need a service manual as every laptop if different in its way of disassembly. Suggest taking somewhere to be repaired but chances of no serious damage are low.

My Sony Lap top model PCG 3G7P was accidentaly fall on the water and it wont start anymore. Can I still fix the laptop and recover the data in the hard disc. What parts in the lap top are usually damaged...

Remove the battery from the laptop
leave in a dry room on its side and leave overnight.
let the water drain out and dry out then try switching it on.
if you get lot of beeping then the keyboard has failed (which can be replaced.)

If you get no lights or sound coming from your laptop hen it probably has died

Water was poured on the keyboard. Battery was removed immediately and wiped dry as was the keyboard. Keyboard was placed under the fan upside down for approximately 2hrs after which battery was replaced...

First thing is to not try powering the laptop on after the water fell on it. Next, you should remove the battery off the laptop immediately. When this is done, you should fully disassemble the laptop & thoroughly inspect its inside. Look for any traces of water on the circuit boards & on other components. On circuit boards, water damage appears in the form of whitish traces. These needs to be wiped off. This can be done using a tooth brush moistened with few drops of hand sanitizer liquid.
Check all internal connectors & make sure that no water seeped into them. Dry them if needed.
When you are done, re-assemble back the laptop.
If the water fell on the keyboard & you found out that the keyboard is no longer working, then you will have to replace the keyboard.
