Question about Compaq Armada M700 Notebook

1 Answer

The bastard laptop won't turn on!

A tiny amount of drink spilt on this stupid laptop, on the key pad mainly and now it doesn't turn on. when its connected to the mains, the battery light and the standby lights (orange and yellow ones respectively) keep flashing at me! 

i took the thing apart and there was only a few drops that i dried from near the battery but when i put it together again, it does the same thing,

is there any specific part i can replace or do i have to buy a new laptop and most importantly, i need my uni work off it and my pics etc.

  •  It could be beneficial to unplug the laptop & remove the battery. Let the system sit & dry for a couple days. More than likely you will have to replace the keyboard. Could be more damage that you do not see. If it is a sugary drink like soda, it enjoys tearing up soldered connections. Best guess wouuld be let it dry out. If it doesnt work & replacing the keyboard doesnt fix it, take it in to a service center.
