You cannot "dry out" a laptop. The liquid gets stuck inside the machine in all the internal crevices.

Take it to a repair shop that knows laptops and can work on it within a day or two. (some place a friend recommends). Also REMOVE the battery so it will minimize the amount of electricity moving through the unit in the meantime.

The longer the machine sits around the more the insides can get corroded.

Be prepared to spend $150-$250 on the machine depending on how many parts are damaged and how much labor is needed to do it. If that much money isnt worth it to you then i would just replace the machine.

I spilt milk on my samsung laptop I shut the power off and wondering what is the best way to dry it


Most likely when the laptop dries out the milk residue will stop the keyboard keys from working properly. Depending upon how much milk has been spilt the milk may have penetrated to the motherboard and caused more damage.
Place the laptop in a warm area for several days.
If the laptop boots up properly but the some of keyboard keys don't work then a replacement keyboard may fix your problem.
Keyboard replacement maybe available from this WEB site.

My son spilt fizzy pop on my samsung laptop n now they are sticky , what can i do


The first thing that needs to be done is to remove all sources of power, the power adapter and the battery. Take those out immediately.
If you aren't good with taking apart computers, leave the cleaning to a computer shop. Otherwise, take the computer apart and clean everything with water and alcohol. Remember to dry the computer when done, a hairdryer on low setting (NOT HIGH HEAT) is best for doing this quickly.

How to Fix Spilt Liquid on bda25ce.jpg?
You accidentally knocked fruit drink or a late night glass of milk on your laptop or your child spilled a good portion of milk directly into your keyboard. You hear a popping noise, the screen goes black. Water by itself is not as bad as milk or juice, both of which are corrosive/acidic, or coffee, tea, soda, etc.
First and most important -Calm Down and unplug the computer from its power source.
Disconnect it from the power cord and remove the battery. If needs, please remove the keyboard. The old adage - Water and Electricity don't mix - is quite true. For your laptop spilled water, let your laptop dry. Do not attempt to turn on the computer for at least 72 hours. Let it sit in a cool, dry place. If you disassembled the laptop, reassemble it after 72 hours have passed.

Spilt little water on key board no power going into going in


First thing is to not try powering the laptop on after the water fell on it. Next, you should remove the battery off the laptop immediately. When this is done, you should fully disassemble the laptop & thoroughly inspect its inside. Look for any traces of water on the circuit boards & on other components. On circuit boards, water damage appears in the form of whitish traces. These needs to be wiped off. This can be done using a tooth brush moistened with few drops of hand sanitizer liquid.
Check all internal connectors & make sure that no water seeped into them. Dry them if needed.
When you are done, re-assemble back the laptop.
If the water fell on the keyboard & you found out that the keyboard is no longer working, then you will have to replace the keyboard.

Hp 530 laptop = dead no lights/nothing...power supply reads 19.2 volts with meter.son spilled drink on keyboard..suggestions?


Remove battery and power. Take apart as much as possible. wash any wet/sticky parts in de-ionised water (as used for topping up batteries), allow to thoroughly dry before re-assembling and powering up. Leave at least 24 hrs to dry.

Try not to get circuit board too wet, but if it does not work then you have nothing to lose!


Liquid on keyboard can be very difficult to fix as damp gets under the membrane - even if computer works the keyboard may not but you could always use USB keyboard.
If you have any Silica Gel packets, put notebook and all parts in a plastic bag with them to absorb all moisture (but make sure no powder gets into the components).

Good luck!
