Acer laptop doesn't power up after water spill


As I'm sure you are now aware , electronics and water do not mix. That said, Remove ALL power IMMEDIATELY if you get water in /on a laptop. If the power is removed , battery, AC, you can try and dry out the spill, otherwise the damage is done. How much damage I can't say, only a qualified computer tech can ascertain that.

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.

Once the liquid was spilled it was important to open and do a full clean up on the board. Now it seems there is moisture or shorting in the board due to this which can cause this malfunction.
So it is best to remove the keypad and check on the mother board. Clean the board and dry using a hair dryer. Make sure that the keyboard also is fully dry .
Reset only after the board is fully found to be dry . If the set wont power ON then some damge was done when it was powered the last time due to the spillover shorting.

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.

Send it for servicing. The liquid may have seeped into the motherboard and spoilt something.

If you still want to try, but it near a warm, not hot heat source. It may speed up the evaporating of the persisting liquid in the laptop.

Soda spill on inspiron


Okay shut it down, do not try to boot it up!! You want to first open the lid as far as it goes and turn it upside down to try and get as much of the liquid out. Then you want to remove the keyboard and all covers from underneath the laptop use compressed air to dry the laptop as much as you can, then with some alcohol and small brush clean soda residue let sit and dry for at least a couple of days. Then re install battery, keyboard and all covers. Then try to boot it up. Hopefully you did not short out the motherboard, or mouse pad and keyboard. Good luck.

Spilled coffee on D600 notebook, power supply turns off when plugged in after had the notebook cleaned. is my notebook not fixable?


When the power supply turns off when plugged into the laptop it is indicating that there is a short. Remove your battery and try connecting the power adapter again. If the problem persists your motherboard will most likely need to be replaced.
There are companies out there that will repair motherboards however if the laptop was on when the spill occurred there is little to know chance that the motherboard is repairable.

Nothing happens when I press the power button except the light


Regardless if you don'r feel comfortable taking the comouter apart it needs to be taken apart and looked at. Depending on what got spilled inside the sooner the better. If it was a soda of some kind it could be bad.I would take out the battery and not try it again.
