My Asus laptop was soak with water incidentally overnight while shutdown. On discovering that, I placed it in the sun for some hours to get dried. I tried powering it but only the cooling fan works and nothing else. Please I need help to fix it. I wouldn't mind paying for any assistance. Thank you.

Not trying to flame Benimur but I would seriously reconsider the carbon tetrachloride route. This is a fairly dangerous chemical and exposure to it or its vapor can affect the central nervous system. Prolonged exposure can cause liver or kidney damage or cancer; chronic exposure can cause comas and death. Not really the chemical you want to be splashing around the house around kids?. Remove all power to the computer including the CMOS backup batter, open it up remove as many parts (hard drive, keyboard, PCMCIA cards, etc.) as you can and let it dry out upside down for several days in a dry hot room. It would be better to disassemble and air dry, but if you can?t go that route the other way should work, eventually. Definitely attempt to recover you valuable data by connecting the laptop drive to a desktop as a slave but again be careful. There is always a chance that the laptop drive could be damaged and could in turn damage the desktop.

Hi, pls, soaked as in submerged or drenched like under the rain? If the laptop was submerged, then you not only have problem with the motherboard and hard drive but likewise with the lcd panel; the most I can suggest is to try and recover your files from the hard drive if they are important. If just drench, then you have to disassemble and clean the inside circuitry using a chemical compound for that purpose such as carbon tetrachloride. Be careful since it's strong enough to damaged some plastic. Pay special attention to the push in connectors and the pins of the components such as the ics. Hope this works out for you. Good luck and regards.

How do I cook pinto beans in a roaster oven?


Soak beans overnight in cold water, drain and rinse, place in roaster (adding a ham bone is a good seasoner), add salt (about 3/4 Tablespoon), cover with water, turn roaster on to 350 degrees, add hot liquid or ham juice when beans are going dry and stir. Don't check too often, because it will release heat and slow cooking time down. Takes 5 hours to fully cook. (Note: bean pkg has quick soak method which works in place of the overnigt soak)

Do the following and it should fix your problem:

- remove laptop battery
- remote real-time clock (CMOS) battery.
- wait 5 minutes
- replace the RTC battery and then
plug in - without the laptop battery.

This should clear the password.

Dishwasher does not clean tea stains from teacups- we have tried a variety of soaps and have used sani-clean. Machine is only one month old- new fully integrated model.


Method #1

  • Wet a cloth then rub the inside of the mug with baking soda. If the stains are stubborn, soak overnight in hot water and baking soda.

Method #2

  • Soak the mug in bleach OR vinegar for several hours or overnight.

Method #3

  • Fill mug with boiling water, add two spoonfuls of dishwasher detergent then soak overnight.

Method #4

  • Try a paste of corn starch and vinegar, apply and let sit for a few minutes then scrub away.

Method #5

  • Drop two denture tablets in the mug, pour hot water over top then soak overnight.

After soaking mugs and removing the stains, rinse and wash very well before using-especially when using the bleach method.

Problem with printhead please consult user guide


Use the printer's utility program to self-clean the printer. This process may need to be repeated as many as 5 to 10 times. Often this will resolve the problem.

Turn the printer off, preferably overnight, if the self-cleaning utility has not worked. The ink may need to soften before the self-cleaning utility will be successful. Turn the printer on and try the self-cleaning utility again several times.


Determine from the owner's manual where the print head is located. Epson printers, for example, are usually in the printer. Many other brands place the print head in the cartridge.


Remove the cartridge. For models where the print head is in the printer, drop seven to 10 drops of isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) down the ink receptacle area. This is the hole where the ink flows into the head from the cartridge. Run a few self-cleaning utilities. If necessary, allow to sit a few hours or overnight and repeat the self-cleaning utility.


Soak the cartridge print head in hot water if the print head is in the cartridge. Allow to soak overnight. Dry the print head area with a paper towel. Repeat the self-cleaning utility.


Place the cartridge print head in isopropyl alcohol if the hot water soak did not unclog the print head. Leave the print head covered in alcohol overnight. Use a damp paper towel to wipe off the print head area. Dry carefully. Try the self-cleaning utility again.


Purchase a new cartridge if the alcohol soak did not unclog the print head in the cartridge. This will provide new print heads that won't be clogged. Contact a service technician for repair of print heads in the printer if the alcohol did not unclog the print head.

Fill it with vinegar and leave to soak overnight/for two nights if really bad.
