Question about Alienware PC Systems ALIENWARE 5620D Notebook

1 Answer

LAPTOP SPILL Long story short; I spilled green tea on my laptop, seconds later it shutdown. Now when I turn it on, it goes to the options screen(f2 for, fr12 for, etc.) then goes to a black screen and stops there. I called alienware and they want an exorbant amount of money for a "possible issues" solution. I have a positive history with bestbuy and am hoping I could be helped once again. Any ideas on what it may be? And could bestbuy provide service of repairs?

The logic board needs to be cleaned or replaced. The part is available on common auction websites so you can try the repair yourself, especially the cleaning shouldn't be so difficult. There are also independent Laptop Repair places that will try a clean up Laptop Repair NYC.

Turns on and off after spill


You should not use laptop at least one week after spill! If someone spill something on laptop, immediately pull out the power cable and battery, and flip the top side down. Then clean it in laptop service and it should be OK, maybe you will have to replace keyboard. If liquid stay inside, it will make short circuit and destroy mainboard, so you should take it to the laptop service for cleaning.

Spill water on my macbook air, and does not turn on


gone with the wind....or shall i say....water....
dump it in the trash bin....
all liquids are enemy of any IC equipments.....
(many have this dirty habbit of drinking Tea/Coffee/Beer etc while working with their notebooks/laptops.....)
on PC..... the liquids normaly spill on to the keyboard/mouse which is seperate from the CPU...
can replace the keyboard of a PC with just few $$$
but with notebooks the main circuit/motherboard is just below the keyboard.....
once a liquid falls...it just goes thru the holes on the keyboard....and short circuits the ICs...chips...etc

After spilling soda on my laptop it turns on and works fine for 1 hour, then screen goes black. I cleaned keyboard fine. Problem is there always. I have to wait for laptop to cool down(fans work fine),...


A soda spill will do this every time. As the Notebook recovers I doubt that the inverter board as gone. But the suger from the soda could be melting and causing a short. The only real solution is to completely dismantle the notebook and clean it with white spirit or similar. It will help if you can download disassembly instructions first! PS Try not to use it for too long without cleaning it.

Keyboard not responding after food spill and clean up


what type of food spill and how did you clean it affects the keyboard. What type of keyboard is it? Is a separate keyboard like for a desktop or is it on a laptop? for desktops, quickly turn the keyboard upside down to prevent fluids going further into the keys. After food spill, use a can of 'air'. Use short blasts to help blow out and dry any moisture out-at the same time, be sure to have the keyboard with keys facing down. for laptops, almost same-turn entire laptop upside down to allow fluids to escape. Be careful not to let the fluids come in contact with screen. Hope you have done some of this. If it doesnt work, you may need to replace the desktop keyboard and for laptops-take to repair shop for internal cleaning. Hope this helps

Computer wont turn on


How long ago did this happen?
Remove the power adapter and the battery.
Remove any removable covers from the bottom of the laptop and look for any signs of liquid. Leave the covers off for a couple of days to allow any liquid or moisture to dry up.

Press and hold in the power button for up to 60 seconds to discharge the laptop.

When you are sure there is no more moisture present try starting the laptop.

If it still won't turn on something may have shorted out during the spill and you will probably have to take it to a repair shop.
