Question about Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook

1 Answer

SPILLED WATER ON DELL INSPIRON 6000 LAPTOP -- and I immediately turned it off and removed as much water as I could with paper towels. After a few hours, it would not power--only a flashing green power light....I removed battery and AC cord and then air dried gently with a hairdryer and then took out keyboard to remove any further visible moisture. I then let it dry overnight. Today when I powered it on with AC cord [no battery] , it started to boot up, then about after a minute, it stopped and then the green power light blinked slowly as before.... are there any recommended steps? Dry longer? Thanks!

SOURCE: Dell Inspiron 1501 wont power on (no power-on

The first thing I would do is see if a local shop has a power adapter for your laptop and see if they will let you try it out. If the computer comes on, then the short is somewhere in the adapter and not the computer (which should save you quite a bit of money). If the computer still doesn't come on then this likely means that there's a short inside your laptop. Usually this happens from the DC Jack on the motherboard being damaged (ie: something got inside the jack, someone tripped over the power adapter cord and broke the inside of the jack, the jack just wore out after alot of use and is shorting out somewhere inside). Most likely you'll have to have the jack replaced. This could get expensive. The laptop has to be completely disassembled to replace the jack. This is a precise process for the tech, from start to finish. There are alot of delicate parts and little screws to keep track of. There is a chance that it's something other than the jack on the motherboard. Usually this happens from some kind of liquid being dumped on the computer. If this is the case then you'll likely have to get the motherboard replaced. That will cost you $250 or more, depending on the going rate of the replacement motherboard, and the service rate of the tech doing the work.

Why did my laptop lose it's operating system after it got wet?


From your description, liquid seeped into internal circuitry. Probably disassembly and addtional drying would have been necessary to remove the liquid completely. Starting the laptop prematurely probably destroyed it..

Keyboard dont type


No matter how careful you may be, knocking a cup of coffee or spilling a glass of soda over your keyboard may happen. This does not, however, mean the end of your keyboard. If you act quickly, you may be able to fix your wet keyboard to avoid any corrosion of its electronic components or any short circuit which might render it unusable. By following a few recommendations, you should be able to fix your wet computer keyboard.

Unplug the keyboard from your computer immediately after the spill to avoid any corrosion or short circuit. If you spilled water over your laptop's keyboard, turn your computer off by clicking on "Shut Down" on "Turn Off" in the start menu, unplug the power supply and remove the battery. Turn the keyboard upside down and shake it to remove most of the water from it. Take a hair dryer and set it to its lowest temperature setting. Use it to dry any water which might remain under your keyboard's keys. Wait at least 12 hours before plugging your keyboard into your computer again. If your computer is a laptop, wait 12 hours before turning it on again. For Other Liquids Disconnect the keyboard from your computer immediately after the spill to avoid any short circuit or corrosion. Turn your computer off by selecting "Shut Down" or "Turn Off" in the start menu, remove the battery and disconnect the power supply. Place paper towels on a table, turn the keyboard upside down and shake it over them to allow most of the liquid to fall down. Take a few clean paper towels and wipe the liquid off your keyboard's keys. To clean between the keys, you can also use cotton swabs with just a little bit of water. If the liquid which you spilled over your keyboard contained a high amount of sugar, such as soda or sugared coffee, you might have to remove some of your keyboard's keys to clean the surface under the keys with paper towels or swabs. You can do so by lifting them gently with a screwdriver or by using a key remover, which you can find in some IT stores. Wait at least 12 hours before using your keyboard again. If your computer is a laptop, wait the same length of time before turning it on again.

Okay. I have a Dell inspiron mini 10. I bought about a year and a half ago. I messed up when i spilled kool-aid on my computer, but i immediately turned it off, wiped off the stuff, opened up the innards...


Hi there!
The motherboard of your Dell Inspiron Mini 10 needs to be replace. If you don't have the Complete Care warranty, then Dell will not replace it for free. I suggest you contact Dell Technical Support and asked them how much it will cost to replace it. Also, check how much a new computer will cost and compare it to the price of replacing the motherboard. You can have an idea if its cheaper to replace the motherboard or to buy a new one.
Hope this helps

Water spilled into my laptop Dell Latitude D600. what do i do


  1. Disconnect any power and remove the battery
  2. Tilt the system in various angles to drain as much of the water from the system as possible.
  3. Let the system dry for several days, (I'd say a minimum of 4) is a relatively warm place
  4. Insert Battery, see if system will power on.
If the system was powered on when the spill occurred and turned off by itself during the spill, then the motherboard has most likely been damaged and will need replacement. ($100 or so on EBay)
If the system will not power on after drying, you might consider replacement rather than repair as the cost of fixing it could exceed the replacement cost. (Dell has portables starting around $399)

Dell Inspiron 6000 keyboard issues


Sounds like something got spilled on it and keys are sticking underneath. Keyboards are quite easy to remove. Check online for help in removing. I suggest you clean it with rubbing alcohol (after it is removed) and spray dry quickly with compressed air. If that dont help then order one online. Tons of dell parts on ebay. Good Luck.

My dell inspiron 1000 also won't turn on


Water spills are terminal for a powered up laptop....especially the older Dv1000s. I am afraid your dv1000's motherboard is fried. There is no resurrecting from that.....you need another motherboard.

You can also pick up the batteries less expensive than most computer places at batteries plus. And yes it sounds as though it is the batteries charge is getting low, especially if it runs fine when the battery is out and you have it plugged in.
