Hi Shema,
In which area do you live in? You can just call up any laptop repair service and tell them your problem and also ask an estimate for the repair. You can call up more than 2 sevices and compare the costs and fix it up.

Thanks.

Coffe spill now screen on lap top not working


No magic fix here Philip. The only thing to do is immediately remove ALL power, AC adapter (Charger) and Battery, and open the laptop up, remove the CMOS Battery, (RTC Battery), and dry it out THOROUGHLY.

After you are SURE all components inside the laptop are dry, reassemble.
Install the Battery, then the AC adapter.

Plug into power. WAIT 1 minute, turn the laptop on.

Click on the file name M30X.

Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer.

IF, the computer is still good you need to give it a fighting chance.

B) Use a multi-compartment container for the various screws you will remove.
Label each compartment for the area the screw/s come out of.

There are MANY screws that look VERY similar to other screws.
DO NOT mix them up.

C) Make a personal record as you disassemble.
Make notes, and drawings. (Legible)
Use a digital camera, or video camera if available. Use good lighting.

It's nice to have a personal record to refer back to, in case you are interrupted.

Spilled water on it, now it wont turn on


Removed battery first. You should disassemble it to clean and wipe it dry. From bottom to top. Under its keyboard. Don't power it on until you are sure no water remains.

I spilled water on my laptop


hi,
since you spilled the water when the laptop was on, the internal ciruits could have been short ciruited. you cannot repair it yourself. please contact a nearby service center. they will give you the information regarding whether it can be fixed or not. but my guess is that it cannot be fixed easily. beacause short ciruits generally blows of the ciruit completely and things like soldering also won't help.

good luck
