Distorted Sound - Acer Aspire 5602WLMi

Hi, after a drink was spilt on a keyboard, I turned the laptop off and let it dry for couple of hours. Then it was working fine, but after 15mins the sound become distorted (kinda buzzy). This sound is same when from internal speakers as from spdif output when i plug headphones. I assume its something wrong rather with the soundcard than the speakers.
No warranty so wanted to open it but dont really know what to look for, as sound card is integrated...
Any suggestions???
Thank you

Yes in a laptop Sound Card is comes as a integrated part of System. Before doing anything else it is highly recommended that you must download the Sound Driver from the Acer website and then install it on your Laptop. Be careful download the only sound Driver that related to your laptop model by using your laptop serial no.

SOURCE: distorted sound - Acer 5602WLMi

those speakers are most likely damp and out of sorts..won't dry and work like before..

taking it apart isn't too hard..screws..but need to be quite careful to keep all parts in a sequence to restore to operation

ok..that's helpful..the sound card, so to speak, is embedded on motherboard on these units, so you'll need to replace that entirely(not simple, but not out of the realm of possibility).

You should look in the Default Devices section of the settings. But it could just be bad contacts in the jack plugs of the sound card.

You may want to just replace the keyboard since they only cost in the $30 range. Do a google search on acer aspire 5517 keyboard.
The beer might have gotten into the motherboard which could be a real problem. Good luck.

Acer Aspire 5602WLMI water in keyboard


Here is a great deal on a replacement keyboard:
http://www.sunvalleyus.com/AcerKeyboard/Acer-5601AWLMi-5602WLMi.html
To replace it, first of all, remove the power connector and the battery before you do anything on that laptop.

remove the 3 screws in the middle cover. remove that middle cover by putting a screwdriver in one of those holes which are covering the displaybrackets. pull it up slowly. same thing goes for the opposite side.

remove the 2 screws which are holding the keyboard and the cable to the mainboard.
Reassembly is the reverse of dissasembly, be careful with the ribbon cable as its fragile, and there is a little plastic piece that either pulls up or pulls out that releases the cable.
One of the easiest repairs to a laptop there is.

Laptop keyboard needs cleaning


I had a client with that problem--we removed the keyboard and tried to clean it. Turns out that our cleaning job was less than perfect because the laptop keyboard is mostly sealed. There was liquid that seeped down onto the motherboard as well--that we could clean up. The long and short of is--you will probably need to replace the keyboard. Of course, with nothing to lose, you could wash the keyboard and let it dry out thoroughly, plug it in, and see if it works. The key here would be the thorough drying. If you decide to try this chancy procedure, don't dry it with high heat. A hair dryer set on low might be the answer.

I spilt my drink on my laptop keyboard...


you can pull the keys out of their sockets and wipe the rubber and plastic holders with a wet cloth. but be very carefull to cloth should not leak, just be wet to dissolve and absorbe the sugar and other stuff that stick the keys. then just insert the keys in the sockets
