Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook

Spilled Soda-HP Pavillion dv6500 laptop and the sound dosent work

I turned it upside down and cleaned it as best as I could, saved off all the important files. I let it dry for a few hours and the keys are sticky (not a big surprise on that one, I plan to change out the keypad) however now the sound isn't working at all. This is my work laptop and it is no longer under warranty. I dont want to tell my boss that I spilled anything on it, but I want my sound back. I tried headphones to see if it was the speakers, or possibly the main board inside, the sound didn't work with headphones either so Im guessing its an expensive fix. Any suggestions?

Hi,
Yes most likely this is a main board problem. The one thing you should have done was keep it upside down take out the battery and leave it that way for days. I have almost the exact same laptop and had a beer spilled all over the keyboard. Flipped over removed battery and then had fan blow on it for 3 days. Had no problems besides a little bit of sticky keys. There are usb audio solutions. Try usb speakers for one. but as for actually solving the problem. It would need a whole new main board. Which does get pretty expensive for the part itself. If you have any other questions or need further assistance please let me know. Also please take a moment to accept and rate my solution accordingly.
Thanks,
Lee

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.

My computer always makes beeps sounds when i boot it up


Hi Daniel,

every computer has certain beep codes that indicate problems during the boot process. These codes are different from each manufacturer. You didn't mention which computer you are having, so I can't send you a solution. The best way is to search i.e. "HP beep codes" or "Dell9150 beep codes".

Let me know if you have any question.
Good luck!

Hm...from the sounds of it you may be looking at a motherboard problem. I would check the audio drivers first, just to make sure it wasn't a coincidence that audio stopped working.

To check the drivers go to the device manager:

XP: go to the start menu, right click on "My Computer", select "Properties". Click on the "Hardware" tab of the new window. Click the "Device Manager" button.

Vista: go to the start menu, right click on "Computer", select "Propterties". In the new window select "Device Manager" from the list on the left.

In the device manager if you have any items that have any question marks in a yellow circle then you have a bad driver.

If the drivers aren't the problem then your best bet would be to look on Ebay or something and try to find a non-working machine of the same model to swap the motherboard from.

If it's just the tops of the keys that are sticky you can wipe those off, if it's the underside of the keys and they stick when you press down then they are cleanable, just much more difficult.
