Spilt a drink

I spilt a drink on my laptop last night. When I turned in on this morning everything was working perfect. When I came home after work and turned it on, this horrible beeping noise kept coming on. The computer was still loading and turning on but this beeping wouldnt stop. I just left it off just incase. Anyone have any idea?

I don't know if I can solve this here. But the beeping noise is your pc trying to tell you what is wrong with it. Somewhere there are pc beep codes. http://www.pcstats.com/articleview.cfm?articleID=1223 If these can't help you just put "computer beep codes" into google. Here they are:
Beep Code: Description of Problem: No Beeps Short, No power, Bad CPU/MB, Loose Peripherals One Beep Everything is normal and Computer POSTed fine Two Beeps POST/CMOS Error One Long Beep, One Short Beep Motherboard Problem One Long Beep, Two Short Beeps Video Problem One Long Beep, Three Short Beeps Video Problem Three Long Beeps Keyboard Error Repeated Long Beeps Memory Error Continuous Hi-Lo Beeps CPU Overheating

    It is very possible that you shorted out the motherboard somehow. The beep codes were created by the motherboard companies. Since your laptop starts, back up your files. This is a long shot but its worth a try--dry it out. Keep your laptop on until it is nice and heated, Laptops create a lot of heat, so maybe being on will dry out what is causing the problem. Then turn it completely off--unplug it and take out the battery. After it is cool to the touch (6 hours or so), turn it back on and see if the beeping is still there. After this, a visual inspection may be warranted or a trip to the pc shop. I do not recommend changing a mb yourself. Some laptops are really difficult (i.e. Dell).

As for cleaning a laptop computer keybord, I would use a can for compressed air, q-tips, and soapy water. I would be careful about getting the laptop too wet as water can seep into the computer. Hope this helps!!

My son has spilt coke on the laptop 1 key not working O


If you spill drinks on a keyboard, something is bound to break, and apparantly only the O key did... The only way to fix it is to get a new keyboard, I'm sorry. I hope this helps, Yannick.

I have spilt a drink on my laptop, however I have managed to get everything working except the keyboard. Is there a way to remove the keyboard in order to make sure it is fully dried or to replace it?


Hi Stacy,

My suggestion is that you put your laptop batteries out first.And check your whole laptop checked from service center.

Well i suggest calling Texas Instruments
The chances of this happening are rare, but the back up
battery probably died. This could probably cause data loss
and you might lose the program and function data. Call and ask
to see what you could do.

Distorted sound - drink spilt


ok..that's helpful..the sound card, so to speak, is embedded on motherboard on these units, so you'll need to replace that entirely(not simple, but not out of the realm of possibility).

I spilt my drink on my laptop keyboard...


you can pull the keys out of their sockets and wipe the rubber and plastic holders with a wet cloth. but be very carefull to cloth should not leak, just be wet to dissolve and absorbe the sugar and other stuff that stick the keys. then just insert the keys in the sockets
