Unfortunetly that sounds like it may have been enough to cause fatal damage. If it was plugged in or running then it most likley caused an electrical short . If it wasn't powered you may have just killed the keyboard.

I've tried to fix several laptops broight in that had coffee, beer, soda, and water spilled on them. Everyone turned out to be non repairable. The worst one was only 3 days old and that was coffee and considered user abuse which meant no warrenty.

You could replace the mainboard and the keyboard if needed and get it running again. That would cost more than this is worth. You should be able to put the hard drive into a usb case ($15 +) and copy off your files and such. It is fixable but not really worth doing.

The motherboard probably has been compromised, the only way to be sure is take it to a computer tech and have it checked out with a estimate.

Dell Latitude D600 Laptop - Freezes when battery plugged in.


Hi,

It's highly unlikely that it's the battery that's at fault here as you have already explained what has happened here.
By the sounds of what you have done it is the diet coke which has done some damage here.

It has probably seeped through the keyboard and has got onto the components that regulate the charge to the battery.

You would have to completely disassemble the laptop and clean all of the sticky coke from all the components inside the laptop. It won't work properly until you have cleaned the motherboard and all other circuit boards that connect to it.
Once it's cleaned the battery may start to charge properly again.

If you need anymore advice please post back.


Regards.

Laptop wont charge


Remove the battery and try again. If it solved the problem the battery is shorted and must be replaced. Look at the plug in the back of the laptop for the power. Is it lose? if it is lose you have a short from it touching contactd together and it must be replaced. If neither of these work try using a loner power supply to see if it is that. The D600 has lots of Power problems on of witch is the Motherboard itself. Hope this helps you out.

When the power supply turns off when plugged into the laptop it is indicating that there is a short. Remove your battery and try connecting the power adapter again. If the problem persists your motherboard will most likely need to be replaced.
There are companies out there that will repair motherboards however if the laptop was on when the spill occurred there is little to know chance that the motherboard is repairable.

I spilled a small amount of coffee onto the keyboard while the computer was in use. I immediately turned it upside down and dried it off. I cannot get it to power " on"


Don't power it on. If that is doesn't seem kind of all water proof kind. Take out the battery and the AC power supply. Turn the laptop upside down without closing the screen monitor and let the coffee be out. Dry it/or take it on a reputable shop( I may suggest).

Have it clean. Hope it doesn't fry something inside.

There are 2 possible points of failure here. The AC adapter or the Motherboard. If possible, try a different D-Series AC adapter from a known good system and see if there is any change. Also test your adapter on a known good Dell if possible. If the adapter is the fault, then replace it. If a known good adapter has the same issue, then the motherboard is at fault and needs replacement. Motherboard are about $100 on EBay
