Question about Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook
Ok, My sister spilt coffee on my laptop and now it will not load the Operating System anymore. So i went into the BIOS and checked and now the Hard Drive is no longer listed but everything else is working just fine. So i thought well i guess she killed the Hard Drive, so I went and got another hard drive of the same type and popped that into the Laptop and still unable to reconize the hard drive. Any help on this would be great. Thanx
The coffee is somehow conducting a short circuit across solder pads, where it should not. The solution lies in removing the coffee. Disassemble completely to the point where you can take the main board and hard drive connector (if exist) out and actually wash in a tub of soapy water and rinse in a tub of alcohol and towel dry and then lightly blow dry. During disassembly, video your work to play back at a later time.
