If you are good enough in opening the casing of a laptop & then safely closing it back,then you may try opening the casing & the keyboard.The mouse touch pad is usually a seperate unit attached with MB with a thin film cable.You have to carefully remove it from its connector & then try cleaning it with any cleaning spray.I am not very optimistic about it as usually the "touchpad" is a sealed unit & the tiny microswitches will be sealed inside the housing!

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

04 Dogde Durango temp light keeps coming on


i would start with the thermostant it may be sticking but also if this has electric cooling fan then there may be a problem with the fan, i think if a thermostant was bad that driving fast would just make it overheat more, but a bad fan would cause this affect because when driving the air is cooling the radiator, also make sure the coolant is full as this could also cause the symptom, hope this helps,also to change the thermostant and bleed the system i would have some shop do this it is very tight spot to get bolts out and then clean surface for new gasket,

Spilt coffee over keyboard


It might be :-( and usually stuff that lack isn't covered unless you pay extra for a high end warranty.

There are a few things you can do to try to save it though. As long as nothing shorted out (you didn't smell anything burning did you?), chances are a good cleaning could fix it. Are the keys sticking? Most laptops nowadays have a small try under the keyboard to keep stuff away from the vital electronics in case of situation such as yours.

1) Power down the laptop and remove the battery
2) Gently pop the keys around where the spill occurred, just pry them with your finger nail, they should snap right off with a little encouragement
3) Take a damp rag and blot up any remaining spills, or sticky spots, remember liquids and electronics dont mix so go easy on the water.
4) With a dry rag, blot up any remaining wet spots, can hurt to let it sit and air dry for a few minutes as well.
5) Pop all the keys back on and hopefully you'll be all set!

Good luck!

A few weeks ago, my LG CU515's display stopped. Please help


Sometimes you can take the battery out while the phone is still on, wait a few seconds, and then pop it back in (this forces the phone to reset itself). If that doesn't work, take it to your local store.
If it's under a year old, it might still be under warranty and you can call 1-800-801-1101 for warranty replacement.
