Question about Gateway CX2608 Notebook
What should I do ?!?! It was an ounce of beer, a splash!, not even that!
Turned the keyboard sideways and drained out what I could, which was not much at all. Held on side and blew coolish air from blow dryer over keyboard. Took battery out and there is no moisture at the bottom anywhere (battery or air vents).
What to do?!
It is upside down now , drying out I hope. Battery is still out.
When i put the battery (after about 20 min's), the blue lights on the accessory keys came on for a second or two, but the laptop would not power up and the screen did not ever indicate life... .
I suggest you download for $6 the service manual for your laptop here
You take it appart and clean everything electronic board component side and wired side with alcool (not beer, something like 90%), you wash the plastics, and build everything back together.
Before pushing the power button, pray a little bit ;)
20mn was too short anyway , next time it's two days min. by hot days.
Good luck and don't forget to vote,
