Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook

Spilled soda on it, screen doesn't work now...

I spilled about a teaspoon of soda on my laptop on the edge of it and it leaked in throught the vent on the side and got on my motherboard and under my wireless card and my modem card/thingy. I opened it up and let it dry out and this fixed the problem of my computer not turning on... but it works fine now-- just no picture on my screen... when I hook up a monitor to it it works great, not slow or anything, just no picture on my screen on the laptop! I don't know what to do now or what might be wrong with it... it's a Inspiron E1705... there isn't a category for this one, or at least I didn't find one... Thanks for your help!

    On my Inspiron E1705 it's the Fn Key and F8... This is how I'm using my laptop now... I hook up the monitor to the back of my laptop and hold Fn and push F8 until it shows up on the monitor hooked up... it never shows up on my laptop screen...

Spilled soda in laptop,now screen has no light, can boot up and see dim image


That can be a hard one. It depends on where you spilled it on the laptop. You can also just wait and leave it on. Then turn it on and off a few times. Sometimes it will just start working again with no problems. The next day it might be fine. But if not, take it to an expert because you don't really know until you look under the hood so to speak.

Spill on key board and now the letters are not typing


If you spilled water then shut off the laptop NOW and let it dry out for about 3 days. If you spilled soda or juice then you will probably need to have the keyboard replace. Hopefully the liquid did not get to the motherboard or then you might have to have that replaced also.

Spilled soda on toshiba laptop m505, keyboard is not working. keys don't stick anymore but not working. what do you recommend to fix it?


You need a new keyboard. The sugar in the soda caused the damage and will further corrode the keyboard.

I would also recommend that you clean the area where the soda may have spilled to on the system board.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

How to Fix Spilt Liquid on bda25ce.jpg?
You accidentally knocked fruit drink or a late night glass of milk on your laptop or your child spilled a good portion of milk directly into your keyboard. You hear a popping noise, the screen goes black. Water by itself is not as bad as milk or juice, both of which are corrosive/acidic, or coffee, tea, soda, etc.
First and most important -Calm Down and unplug the computer from its power source.
Disconnect it from the power cord and remove the battery. If needs, please remove the keyboard. The old adage - Water and Electricity don't mix - is quite true. For your laptop spilled water, let your laptop dry. Do not attempt to turn on the computer for at least 72 hours. Let it sit in a cool, dry place. If you disassembled the laptop, reassemble it after 72 hours have passed.

I spilled soda on my screen and now it turned green. my computer is a hp pavilion tx 1000


Hard to tell without opening the laptop up. Depends where the soda got to. Alot of times it could be an inverter ($70-$150) or could be more serious like a new LCD Screen ($400+) and/or Motherboard ($$$+).

I would take it somewhere you trust that has a small diagnosis fee so they can take it apart and see what the soda has gotten too. Then you could decide if the cost is worth it.

Hope this helps.

Yes, you would notice the problems immediately. The problems that would occur would be hardware short circuiting.
