Wow, a little restraint next time :).. My thinkpad was dropped into a hottub let it sit for two weeks and everything except the M key worked.

Anyway I can tell you it's not worth your time, pull the Harddrive out go to tigerdirect get a brand new laptop for around 300-500$ and get a 25$ EIDE (or SATA if so equiped) to USB adapter so at least you can get your documents and what not from the old system..

Hp G62 dead after spill


In most cases, you are in a position where you may need to return it to HP for repair.

There is one thing you can try, but it takes a very gentle hand and touch: use something like Fantastic, or a more eco-friendly spray solution. Gently spray the key board all over where the spill went, which
means probably the whole keyboard.

Let it sit a few minutes, then turn it upside down on paper towels and let it drain.

Then, gently spray it again with plain water and let it sit upside down on more paper towels. Allow it to drain for a long time, something like a day or more.

When you turn the laptop right side up, you may find the keyboard fully functional again. But there is no guarantee. This works mostly on keyboards attached to desktop computers, not integrated into laptops.

The concept is the same - cleanse the keyboard, flush it, and allow it plenty of time to dry. Remember, liquid and electricity, no matter how low voltage, like a keyboard, are not friendly. If you try to use it before it is completely dry, you can fry more than just the keyboard.

It's possible to help it along with a gentle application of a hair blower, but not until after the two cleanings, and at least a day upside down on paper towels.

Good luck.

Cheers!

Liquid spills


Todays notebooks & laptops come equipped with spill resistant keyboards. Thats a big help in itself. But some are not . If your notebook has suffered a liquid spill while its on , IMMEDIATELY shut it down. GET AWAY from carpeting or metal furniture or objects: stand on wood or cement floor only. Turn the unit and place on its side to drain it from the liquid (NOT UPSIDE DOWN) and to avoid further damage to mainboard and keyboard. DO NOT TURN IT ON AGAIN  . Remove the battery, hard disk drive, CDROM, memory modules, remove back cover, until exposed to mainboard. Take conventional hair dryer, blow dry using HIGH heat, slowly move over peripherals and mainboard  five inches away with  Extra drying process on keyboard and mainboard. Using a few cotton balls, pat down any excess liquid by absorbing into cotton -- blow dry this area intensley for long time (20-35 minutes, depending on amount of liquid spill). Wait a few days , replace all parts and turn on notebook.

I spilled liquid on my HP Probook 4320S (with spill resistant keyboard). Dried it up straight afterwards. Now it won't power up


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.

Spill on key board and now the letters are not typing


If you spilled water then shut off the laptop NOW and let it dry out for about 3 days. If you spilled soda or juice then you will probably need to have the keyboard replace. Hopefully the liquid did not get to the motherboard or then you might have to have that replaced also.

I spilled hot tea on the key board and it turnned off


When this happens, you should fully disassemble the laptop & thoroughly inspect its inside. Look for any traces of liquid on the circuit boards & on other components. On circuit boards, liquid 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 liquid seeped into them. Dry them if needed.
When you are done, re-assemble back the laptop.
If the liquid fell on the keyboard & you found out that the keyboard is no longer working, then you will have to replace the keyboard

How to Fix Spilt Liquid on bda25ce.jpg?
You accidentally knocked fruit drink or a late night glass of milk on your laptop or your child spilled a good portion of milk directly into your keyboard. You hear a popping noise, the screen goes black. Water by itself is not as bad as milk or juice, both of which are corrosive/acidic, or coffee, tea, soda, etc.
First and most important -Calm Down and unplug the computer from its power source.
Disconnect it from the power cord and remove the battery. If needs, please remove the keyboard. The old adage - Water and Electricity don't mix - is quite true. For your laptop spilled water, let your laptop dry. Do not attempt to turn on the computer for at least 72 hours. Let it sit in a cool, dry place. If you disassembled the laptop, reassemble it after 72 hours have passed.
