As long as you didn't try to turn it on yet AND it was NOT on when it fell in to the water there is a chance it will still work.

Pull the battery, put it in a big container and fill\cover it with rice. The rice will absorb the moisture. Leave it in there for at least 5 days straight and then try it. But just in case have a fire extinguisher ready.

This works with cell phones, maybe you'll get lucky.

My engine is overheating. 98 Olds Silhouette. I changed thermostat, thanks to Fix ya.com assistance. now engine is still overheating. Are my next steps checking and or changing the water pump? Or am I...


Alway worry about the head gasket. Run it if you fell water running threw the lines(check all of them)it may not be the pump. Check water levels. If you fell water running and dont see water on the ground check to see if the fan is kicking on. You may just have to do a heavy flush. Now it if the temp is running cooler but still hot you have to replace the thermostat again the wax after it over heats breaks down. If its still running hot there go to your parts store and rent a code meter. It helps some times Good luck

I spilled water on my MacBook. Now it won't turn out


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.

Once water fell down on my laptop. now my laptop keys are not working. what i have to do?tell me the trouble shooting steps.


Only if you are lucky the fault will be resolved because if any water falls on electronics it would conduct very easily and hence the possibility that some damage has already been done. But to make an attempt we can first of all remove off the battery and remove the covers very carefully. remove the keyboards and look at the connecting cords to the mainboard. Use a good volatile solvent like petrol dipped in cotton buds to wipe out all the dirt+moisture inthe board. Use a hairdryer to warm off all the moisture and keep for drying at least for a day .Repeat the work once again before you reset the boards back connecting carefully. Now lets hope that your keyboard works or else the next option will be to connect a bluetooth wireless keyboard. Hope you try this out. Good day
