Sounds like a short to me...you probably missed some liquid as it does not take much...go thru the process again. I know thats not what you wanted to hear...but liquid on those things is a nightmare and you just never know where some of it went. A complete drying is in order...if it was a sticky liquid like soda....even when "dry" it can still short it out. If it was water...double check you got all the water...then let it sit out for a day.

Only Dell will be able to supply a replacement Dell motherboard.
Telephone Dell, and ask for Technical Support, to find the part-number and the (HIGH!) cost.

Wlan not working on dell vostro 1000


Try disable, then re-enable the driver, if still no luck, try to locate the wireless adapters properties an check to see if all is in order, ch, SSID, everything must match to the wireless signal. (by the way where is the signal coming from ?) your router ? or else where ?

Keyboard doesnt function properly


It is possible that the keyboard matrix is shorted so when you use the external kbd it still gets the same errors. See if you can disable the main kbd in bios and if that solves the problem. You could also try removing the main kbd and see what that does. Otherwise you probably have a motherboard problem. The touchpads are usually pretty tough to liquids - check the cable on that.

Spilled liquid in laptop; wont power up


Gennerally, this is a motherboad replacement at a minimum, often many other components are damaged too. If the system is 4 or 5 years old, it may be too old to be econmically repairable

Update Dell Vostro 1000 BIOS now wont turn on, nothing on display


You may be in for some trouble, a failed bios update isn't always an easy fix. if you can find the cmos battery try to remove that for a few seconds. you will also need a disk version of the bios, download that from dell on another computer and copy it to floppy or cd and see if you can boot to that and reinstall the bios.

when you press the power button what happens, does it light up and run the fan? Nothing appears on the screen?
