Spilled liquid on Keyboard!

1. Purchase plastic keyboard cover. 2. Keep coffee etc. anywhere not near keyboard.

For spill, unplug keyboard. If non sugar liquid, invert keyboard, shake or tap gently. Wipe with lent free absorbent cloth while still inverted. If soda or coffee with sugar, pour 1/4 cup of clear clean (distilled the best) water onto keyboard (yes), Then invert. Let dry a minimum of several hours still inverted. I cheat with a hairdryer on low 6-12 inches. After keyboard is completely dry (and cool). Plug in after turning computer off, restart, test all keys, including shift, option etc. If keys miss or don't work buy new keyboard and cover! Aloha, Cliff

Liquid spills

Todays notebooks & laptops come equipped with spill resistant keyboards. Thats a big help in itself. But some are not . If your notebook has suffered a liquid spill while its on , IMMEDIATELY shut it down. GET AWAY from carpeting or metal furniture or objects: stand on wood or cement floor only. Turn the unit and place on its side to drain it from the liquid (NOT UPSIDE DOWN) and to avoid further damage to mainboard and keyboard. DO NOT TURN IT ON AGAIN  . Remove the battery, hard disk drive, CDROM, memory modules, remove back cover, until exposed to mainboard. Take conventional hair dryer, blow dry using HIGH heat, slowly move over peripherals and mainboard  five inches away with  Extra drying process on keyboard and mainboard. Using a few cotton balls, pat down any excess liquid by absorbing into cotton -- blow dry this area intensley for long time (20-35 minutes, depending on amount of liquid spill). Wait a few days , replace all parts and turn on notebook.

My laptop is only a month and a half old. It got accidentally wet and it is turning on but the screen does not come on. It is an Acer Aspire 5250. I believe the computer is aired out and dry now.

In most cases, the problem is going to require significant dis-assembly to dry out the computer and get it working again. Depending on the liquid involved the damage can be minimal or severe! If it was just water with nothing else in it, then getting it dried out within a few hours will likely have no affect on it, provided of course it did not sustain damage from being shorted out. unplugging it and removing the battery IMMEDIATELY is the best choice to prevent significant damage. Since the liquid can get into areas that simply are not going to dry out until evaporation occurs, it is best to not delay and remove as many access covers as possible and try blow drying it. if the water got into the screen, this is not going to work and the screen will have to be dismantled.
If the liquid involved ANYTHING other than water (soda, coffee, sugary, etc) the damage that can result from continued exposure to these substances WILL do permanent damage if not removed within a few hours of the initial spill.
You will be surprised how many little spaces that water will go that simply will not dry out until exposed.
The last laptop I worked on had coffee spilled on the keyboard. The entire main board, processor and several tiny socket connections were saturated and letting it air dry would not have helped.
I suggest taking it to a professional for service and repair. I also recommend ANYONE buying a laptop, get damage warranty coverage just for reasons like this, its definitely well worth the price.
You can expect the repair on this to be easily more than the cost of the damage warranty.

Liquid spilled into the cooktop (gas with electrice ignition) and now the igniter doesn't work.

If it was clear liquid, after a day or so your cooktop igniters should start working again. If it was a gooey spill you may need to gently clean them. They will not work until they are very dry.

Touchpad on dell vostro wont work

Sounds like a short to 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.

The liquid has shorted out probably every electronic component in the unit. It is fried. You need a new one.
