    What model of laptop do you have? This is even assuming it'll look or work well after you take it apart and dry it out.

If you want to get the water out you take a chance of destroying the screen. You can take the screen apart but if its in the lcd portion of the screen and not the plastic surrounding it, I would have to say that damage is almost certain. You could look at it this way, if you damage it you probably would have had to get another anyways so heres how to do it. Each model and brand has a different way of getting certain parts off of the laptop so I am going to give you the basics and if you pay attention to what your doing you should be able to get the laptop apart without damage. Unplug your laptop and remove the battery. You should remove the strip of plastic between the keyboard and the LCD lid. Sometimes theres screws that hold this to the computer and sometimes they dont. Once you have the plastic trim removed you shoulld be able to see the Video cable going from the mainboard to the LCD lid. Unplug the cable from the mainboard. If you have WIFI in your laptop there will be 2 wires that go to the wifi card. You should be able to get the LCD out without unplugging these wires and having to rerout the cables when you put it back together. You will need some small Philips screwdrivers. Take the stick on tabs off of the plastic bezel in the screen side of the LCD lid to reveal the bezel screws. Take the screws out and carefully pull the bezel off. There are normally tabs that keep the bezel on as well as the screws. Once the bezel is off then you can get to the screws that hold the LCD in the back cover. You will need to carefully remove the wires from the inverter (normally at the bottom of the LCD) since you dont need to take the inverter off of the LCD back cover most of the time. Once you have the LCD out you can take the tiny screws out of the edges of the LCD. You also should unplug the Video cable from the back of the LCD. Now the only thing holding the layers of the LCD together is some tape. Sometimes its an aluminum tape. and sometimes not but remove the tape from 3 sides leaving the side where the wires are taped. Split the frame apart and you will find that you can get to the different layers of display material. DO NOT PULL THEM OUT! Just lift the layers you have to and wipe clean then blow with compressed air to remove dust. Any dust may show when its put back together. Note: Be carefull because the LCD bulb is located in this area. This is the light that lights up the LCD. If it breaks you will have to buy another LCD. Reverse the process to get the LCD back together and see how it works. I have done what you are asking about to change bad bulbs before. At least the LCD should look better and the worst that could happen is you make the LCD not work and you have to go to ebay and get another. Good luck.

The simplest way to remove a BIOS password is to simply remove the CMOS battery. A computer will remember its settings and keep the time even when it is turned off and unplugged because these parts are powered by small battery inside the computer called a CMOS battery. If we pull out this battery, the computer will forget alot of its hardware settings, including its BIOS password. This should not be performed on Laptops if you are not experienced working with laptop hardware.

Hi, Sorry but we are not allowed to help people circumvent passwords or disable them. We have no way of knowing you are the laptop owner. Do you follow me? This is for your protection if this is your laptop.

You will have to contact HP directly and or the fingerprint scanner manufacturer yourself. On the back of your HP laptop is a Service Tag that sort of looks like this one.e424f16.jpg
Once HP is satisfied, you can receive instructions from them.

The only other way is to remove the wrist rest and keypad bezel carefully. It has a sensitive ribbon cable attached to the mainboard, don't let this become detached. Inside the mainboard is a battery pack that has a red and white wire. You disconnect the wire plug from its socket with A/C power removed and your battery out. Leave this plug out for several minutes. Replace it, replace your wrist rest and keyboard bezel and insert your battery, attach A/C power and boot up, immediately press and tap F10 to enter the Setup Screens. You will need to set the time and date and at the bottom of the screen will be a keyboard legend that will tell you which F key loads setup defaults, usually F9. Leave the fingerprint scanner off your system and seek advice on how to reset it to none from the manufacturer. Although most of these devices comes with a small CD to setup the scanner.

Hope this fixes your issue.

Regards,

This could be a hard drive crash, however, I just repaired a machine that had a similar issue. A loose connection an the board was prompting the machine to blue screen, and then shutdown all together. I had to tear the machine completely down to find it.

My laptop got water in the screen.how can i remove it?


You can take the screen apart or you can use a vacuum cleaner to **** out the water and then put it in a bawl or tub with rice in it, so that the rice sucks out the moister.
