Distorted Sound on Laptop after drink was spilt

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.

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).

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.

My son spilled a drink on his laptop (yesterday) and now it wont turn on at all. do you think it will dry out? we only bought it a few weeks ago and it was expensive!


Hi

Thank you for your query

Unfortunatley it is one of these issues where you will have to wait, I would try to place the laptop near a warm heat source (please note this is done at your own risk in the sense that it is NOT to be put near a gas fire or any other appliance where it can catch fire), to dry up and then you can retry

If alot of drink was spilt then it will probably have seeped pass the keyboard down into the internals

If it is only a few weeks old did you purchase some sort of accidental cover? as you may be able to get it exchanged, to be honest it may be worth trying to exchange it anyway as it is only a few weeks old the manager of the store may allow it

I hope this has been useful

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.

The bastard laptop won't turn on!


  •  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.
