1) DON'T TURN IT ON, unplug it and remove the battery. then WAIT

If it's already dead, like went out when the cola was spilled, you can still get all your information out of it if you take it someplace and have them remove the hard drive and get the data out of it.

It's much better to have a sticky keyboard than to have a dead computer, so let it dry completely before trying to remove it.

The removal process might be a bit difficult if it got down below the keyboard.

Click on this Link to go to a web page that will walk you through the removal of the keyboard, hard drive and other components. The idea is to remove all power from the computer, then remove components and wipe them off. There are some non-conductive cleaners out there. HERE's ONE

Even if your computer is dead, you can remove the hard drive, using the instructions above and then put the drive into an external enclosure like THIS ONE. Then plug the hard drive into another computer to get your data off it.

If the computer wasn't on and you don't know for sure that it's dead, i'd remove the battery and unplug it and let it sit for a couple days so the liquid dries and then take it to a repair shop.

Good luck and write back if you need more help.

HOw to Clean your keyobard effectively


Keyboard cleaningIf you're trying to clean a laptop keyboard see document CH000780 for additional help and information. All of the below information applies to standard desktop computer keyboards.
Why? Dirt, dust and hair can build up causing the keyboard to not function properly.
Procedure: Many people clean the keyboard by turning it upside down and shaking. A more effective method is to use compressed air. Compressed air is pressurized air contained in a can with a very long nozzle. Simply aim the air between the keys and blow away all of the dust and debris that has gathered there. A vacuum cleaner can also be used, but make sure the keyboard doesn't have loose "pop off" keys that could possibly be sucked up by the vacuum.
Why? If the keyboard has anything spilt into it (ie: pop, cola, Pepsi, Coke, beer, wine, coffee, milk, etc.), not taking the proper steps can cause the keyboard to be destroyed.
Procedure: Below are a few recommendations to help prevent a keyboard from becoming bad once a substance has been spilt within it.
If anything is spilt onto the keyboard turn the computer off immediately. Once the computer is turned off, quickly flip the keyboard over helping to prevent the substance from penetrating circuits. While the keyboard is upside down, shake the keyboard over a surface you do not mind getting wet or that can be cleaned up later. While still upside down, use a cloth to help clean out what can be reached. After you you have cleaned the keyboard to the best of your ability leave the keyboard upside down for at least one night allowing it to dry.
If a keyboard does not work after trying it again later it is recommended that it be replaced. If the keyboard works but some of the keys are sticky or cannot be pressed in you can attempt to do additional cleaning in attempt to resolve the issue. Unfortunately many times when any sticky substance such as a non-diet pop is spilt directly onto the keyboard it's usually a loss unless you plan on spending dozens of hours attempting to clean each key.
Why? A keyboard that is used by multiple people, such as students or different employees, may need to be disinfected to help the spread of germs.
Procedure: Turn off the computer. Spray a disinfectant onto a cloth or damp a cloth with alcohol and rub each of the keys on the keyboard. As mentioned in our general cleaning tips, never spray any type of liquid onto the keyboard.

Plugged it into 240V now it wont run


there is a little relay on the compressor more then likely that is toast. I would start by pulling it off and replacing that. Get back with me and we could go from there. The relay protects the compressor from overloading. Now do you have a fan beside the compressor?

Coca cola is very acidic, this is an example of what it does to your body, it dissolves it! It has messed up the curcuitry of the camera  so its off to a technician or a new camera.....

Che-ez foxz camera


The Foxz3 drivers aren't configured for Vista (only mentions Windows 98, 2000 and XP on the original box). However, you can grab your pix by treating the Foxz3 as a mass storage device (in MSDC mode - not PC Camera). Worked fine for downloading my daughter's pix onto our Vista laptop. Not so hot for videoclips though.

Spillage


If you hurry and get some flux off and take the tv apart and clean all the PCB's with the flux off, provided the set still works, then you can possibly save it
