My IBM T40 has got a liquid spillage on the keyboard while was operating !! , when I left it for some time then tried again, it powered up normally & worked very fine But once it turned off , it...

Once the liquid was spilled it was important to open and do a full clean up on the board. Now it seems there is moisture or shorting in the board due to this which can cause this malfunction.
So it is best to remove the keypad and check on the mother board. Clean the board and dry using a hair dryer. Make sure that the keyboard also is fully dry .
Reset only after the board is fully found to be dry . If the set wont power ON then some damge was done when it was powered the last time due to the spillover shorting.

Intel mother board power light is on... but processor not working.. when switch on my cpu. the mother board powerlight displayed.mother fan is only one time run for sec.. processor not on

This is was with me too. I know how to fix it. Remove all cables from your cabinet, i mean like keyboard, mouse, moniter etc. Remove your ram too. Then press your power button from 30 seconds. wait for 10 mins plugin all cables and turn it on. Hope it works for you.

Best of luck.

Cannot reset ipod touch

Take the thing back to the Apple store and they will replace the thing with a brand spankin new one if they can't figure it out and your within your 1 year return window.  If you spilled liquid on this thing they won't do sh.t for you and just hand the thing back.

Mother board

The motherboard is bad, you can try taking out the battery and only hooking up the Ac Adaptor to see if the problem goes away but if it doesn't then the motherboard they replaced it with is faulty.

Actually since water was spilled on it beforehand. Take out the hard drive and dvd drive and try powering it up again just to rule out the hard drive or dvd drive shorting out the computer.

Mac notebook will not come on

Usually when you spill liquids over an electronic device, it better be off the power. Once it dries you can most cases use it again.
With a laptop thats a different story, because it has the battery in it.

In your case i think:
The battery probably died because of the liquid, i had the same thing happening to my dads laptop. Try to plug the mac in and start it without the battery.

Because the mac came on at all, you can be sure that the mainboard is still working.
If it comes on with the powercord pluged in or a different battery, you should just consider buying a new battery.

Two years are a long time for computer parts. Im not sure, but the battery of the newer notebook might be incompatible to the old one.

So try to get a new battery, since this is the part that dies first when liquids get spilled.

I hope this works for you =)
