Question about IBM ThinkPad R50e Notebook

1 Answer

R50e won't START at all

I accidentally spilled some sprite onto my laptop a while ago, i managed to clean it and dry it off but since then its never been the same. It now does not power up at all, however on rare occasions it does power up, in which case for the last 3 months ive not turned it off and have been using it without any problems. Unfortunatly I forgot to leave on charge recently and now im back to square one, it wont boot up again.

If i have the charger plugged in, then the green charging light shows.

Any ideas?

Most likely, corrosion is developed on your motherboard....replace it or get a new laptop.

Do not power it up. If only water it will eventually dry out but beer is sticky and requires proper cleaning. Maybe take apart, rinse with water to remove residues and allow to dry thoroughly covered in rice to aid drying. However if it was on when the spill happened it may well be fried.

Take it to a service shop asp, key board will need to be replaced, and the laptop will need to be assessed for motherboard damage.

you should let it dry for awhile. Sometimes you are okay after a liquid spill as long as you let it dry, but other times it can fry your motherboard. I killed one of mine that way too.

There is not so much that could be done to repair a keyboard. Disassemble the laptop, check the ribbon cable connecting the keyboard to the motherboard. If the ribbon cable is loose, tighten it. If it is tight, replace the keyboard with a new one

My son spilled a drink on his laptop (yesterday) and now it wont turn on at all. do you think it will dry out? we only bought it a few weeks ago and it was expensive!


Hi

Thank you for your query

Unfortunatley it is one of these issues where you will have to wait, I would try to place the laptop near a warm heat source (please note this is done at your own risk in the sense that it is NOT to be put near a gas fire or any other appliance where it can catch fire), to dry up and then you can retry

If alot of drink was spilt then it will probably have seeped pass the keyboard down into the internals

If it is only a few weeks old did you purchase some sort of accidental cover? as you may be able to get it exchanged, to be honest it may be worth trying to exchange it anyway as it is only a few weeks old the manager of the store may allow it

I hope this has been useful

BATTERY WON´T CHARGE ON DELL C600


It is possible the battery where the contacts from the laptop fit into or the gold colored contacts themselves need to be repaired. Worst case, the spill short circuited the contacts on the board, in which case you will have to replace the board. I would suggest really cleaning the gold contacts on the laptop and the small slots on the battery itself with a Q-tip with a little bit of rubbing alcohol on it. Please make sure both areas are totally dry before reassembling the battery.

Good Luck,
