Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook
So i spilled a glass of wine on laptop keboard few weeks ago...i replaced keyboard and i worked fine for a while till now...now it freezes every 2 seconds only for a nanosecond...just long enugh to cause some letters to not type as you can see by spelling errors and when i move mouse across screen is is really jerky...not smooth like it should be....also if a noise plays it kinda freezes at spots and skips....when i had computer open there was not even a drop of wine on anything except in the keyboard....i only spilled very small amount...the reason i fixed keyboard myself is because best buy said it wasnt covered by my service plan for spilling on it....i hit f11 during boot up and restored to factory condition but that did nothing but actually made it slightly worse....any ideas....pleeeeease help me!!!
There was more damage than just the keyboard, your fault appears intermitten and possibly some connectors and sockets are not making good electrical contact. You need to dismantle the laptop completely to inspect and clean what ever you can with distilled water and let it dry throughly. It still may not work because there may be some electrical damage to some chips and components, especially if the laptop was running at the time of the wine spill.
There is not much help I can offer you except to advise you to buy another laptop, and if the hard drive in the old laptop is OK then buy a USB hard drive case and insert the laptop hard drive in this case and use it as an external USB hard drive. You need to delete all the old system files etc. to maxmise the hard disk space.
