Alright, the problem is obviouse, Imasuming you have turned it off.

Remove keyboard, usually you have to pop off the plastic bracket and remove a couple screws underneath or on the bottom of laptop to remove keyboard.

Soak up any water or moisture.

Leave the keyboard off for a couple of days in a dry place as well as the laptop.

Remove the battery as well.

If the laptop didnt short out when the water fell on it, then theres a good chance its alright once you dry everything out.

After 3 days or so, and you know its all dry, put back together and give it a try.

If it shorted out when the water fell on it, then the laptop is probably a gonner. You should be able to salvage the Hard drive, RAM and CD Drives.

The mother board is what would go out if water shorted it, you may be able to replace the mother board and it may work fine. It up to you if yo want to try.

Good luck.

Put it in a warm and dry place for a few days. If that doesn't help open the Laptop and clean and dry it out as much as you can. Here's a guide on how to disassemble a Laptop. Maybe a tech savy friend can do it for you. If you want to pay to have a service do it for you there are third party Repair Services.

I droped sprite on my laptop


if liquid poured into the computer through the keyboard, you will have to send it out to be repaired. It may work a little at first then crash or start acting up. There are many services that offer a flat rate to repair these problems. Look on ebay or google for MacBook pro repair or liquid damage. Should be about 250-400 bucks including shipping. cheaper than a new mac.

I do most of my shopping online and liquid bleach sometimes doesn't ship without breaking. Is it OK to use dry or powder bleach? I have the whirlpool cabrio top load large capacity model.


It should be okay to use dry bleach, if you follow the instructions on the bleach. Some bleaches require dissolving in water first, others can be used dry.

My daughter accidentally poured some liquids on my acer aspire laptop. after drying it, the keyboards are not functioning but the mouse and biometrics are ok.


Good news. This may be repairable. A new replacement keyboard will cost about 50-100. Before you commit to repairing (which I can help you with) plug in a regular USB keyboard you borrow from someone and see if it works fully, then let me know.

Hi
There is a little button that controls the cursor of your laptop.All you need to do is to press the button just right above the onboard mouse and it would unfreeze.You might have also mistakenly poured water or any liquid on thar surface,it could also affect the cursor.

Dell vostro 1000 left mouse click button is sticking.


Well, a sticky mouse could be a cause of liquid being spilt onto your palmrest. If so you need to get yourself a liquid cleaner (specialized products used for cleaning electronics such as Commercial Alcohol). you need to pour some into the right button of the mouse while pressing the button continuously (dont worry about spilling, will evaporate soon enough.

Before doing this make sure that you power cable and battery is disconnected, and only switch it on about 20 minutes later.

While pressing the button you should feel it loosening.

If it isnt due to liquid, check you warranty and call Dell. They should beable to advise you further.

Hpcompaq nx8230 doesn't start.


Keyboard circuit is already shorted. You must clean the the keyboard portion inside the laptop because there are still liquid there. You have two options. Call the laptop provider to fix that issue or claim your warranty.
