Question about Computers & Internet
Hi I have a toshiba satellite pro A100 laptop, and this morning my lovely daughter spilt coke over it. There wasnt much and it only seemed to be on the screen top (as the laptop was shut) however there was a bit on the keyboard and when i opened it there seemed to be a crackling sound coming from the speakers ? I turned it off and unplugged the mains and it has been laid next to the radiator for the past 4 hours, i have now tried it again and it booted, there was still the crackling and then the screen went black, but the 'on' light is flashing blue, the capslock light is flashing as are two others on the keyboard. Is it buggered or is there anything i can do to fix it ? Any help would be apprciated.
Oh dear! Well it could just be the keyboard thats giving you the trouble but you just cant tell. You can buy keyboards through ebay for bout £20 from china (they are Ok and usually original items).
Maybe you should remove the keyboard and try drying it out or even seeing if it will boot without it installed.
To remove the keyboard you first gently prise up the facia panel above the keyboard directly below the screen. Work right to left. A couple of the plastic tags securing it can be found under the battery
When you have it up remove the 3 screws securing the keyboard at the top, slide it gently towards the screen and lift it out. The cable is gently prised out of its connector.

I would take it apart and see how far the coke got into the system but the crackling means it got in far enough... remember it's not about time it's about contact because a milisecond is to much time! I would take the hard drive out and test it with another laptop and hope it's not damaged and see if you're under warranty if not laptops are around 400 now so be thankful and remember around pc's cups with lids.
