Question about Computers & Internet
I spilled a little water on my laptop keyboard about a week ago. It seemed alright so I didn't turn it off (which I realize I should have done after looking at some of the other solutions posted on this site). Since then, my mouse has been right clicking like mad. It often clicks repeatedly for minutes at a time, then sometimes I can get it to stop for a few minutes. I presume this is a fried hardware problem, but are there any possible software fixes or anything else I can do once the thing has obviously dried? Thanks!
honestly, the only thing you can do, or have done, is to disassemble the laptop, get inside and look at the connectors and components. Sometimes the liquid causes corrosion, and some cleaning with alcohol can clean things up.
This is surely hardware, not an easy software fix.
Other times, cables or connectors can be replaced. I have had the keyboard go bad, the touchpad, the cables to the power strip by the power button, and even leak down into the ram, and corrode the ram contacts.
All were fixable, so it is possible. The key is to get deep inside and check out where the liquid flowed, and examine the parts. A good shop that knows laptops can help.
