Question about Sony VIAO P4 PCV-RS712 3.0GHz 512MB 200GB DVD RW DVD BRAND PC Desktop
I spilled a small amount of water around the touchpad area on my Acer 5630, now the speakers no longer work. What should I do, and how can I open up the case to clean off any excess water?
Thanks for your help.
I was working with my laptop in the back yard when the sprinklers went off. The laptop got wet. I let it dry but the speakers sound awful. Can it be repaired?
I'd say a wet speaker will never sound that good again, have it replaced, it's not that expensive.

Most likely the internal speakers are damage or have water trapped in them and is causing the problem. I would not use the laptop till its fixed as the water could seep further and short the mainboard.
You can try opening it up and drying everything out but its a tedius task. First thing, Remove the Hard drive, battery and any CD drives or add in cards. Then you have to remove the keyboard by removing the plastic bezel above the keyboard, along with some screws on the bottom and back. Once the keyboard is off, the screen follows after.
You have to unplug the ribbons as you remove so they dont get yanked out or damaged. be carefull not to damage the clips for the ribbon.
If you go further then you will have to seperate the caseing and eventaully lift it off.
ADVICE. Get a sheet of paper and draw several circle and lay your screw in them on the paper and label where they go, this will help when putting back together.
Once it apart or at least have the keyboard off, dry any visible moisture with a paper towel. be gentle.
Let the laptop air out for a couple days in a dry place.
Your harddrive should be fine, so if the laptop craps out, keep it, you can format it or recover the files with another computer later.
Try this and let me know.
