Laptop speakers not working after water spill, everything else is ok

I spilled a small amount of water around the touchpad area on my Acer 5630, now the speakers no longer work. What should I do, and how can I open up the case to clean off any excess water?

Thanks for your help.

You stated 'a small amount' and if this is the case, I would leave the power off for a few days, sitting in a warm place to see if your audio returns.

If your water is not too saturated with minerals making it conductive and operating it wet hasn't done any damage, you may luck out.

I have cured some nasty spills (cat urine anyone?) by bathing the device in warm distilled water and allowing it DAYS to dry before restoring power.

Acer laptop doesn't power up after water spill


As I'm sure you are now aware , electronics and water do not mix. That said, Remove ALL power IMMEDIATELY if you get water in /on a laptop. If the power is removed , battery, AC, you can try and dry out the spill, otherwise the damage is done. How much damage I can't say, only a qualified computer tech can ascertain that.

Wow! Electronics and Water do not mix. Your Dell Inspiron 1545 keyboard can be removed follow these instructions from Dell:

Then the next step is to get the water dryed out from under side.
As crazy as this may seem I have tried it on many other things like phones, and remotes left out in the rain.
Get a cheesecloth fill it up with rice! Yes RICE! It is one of the best absorbents.

Place it on the under where the keyboard sits overnight and give it a try in the morning.

Touchpad on dell vostro wont work


Sounds like a short to me...you probably missed some liquid as it does not take much...go thru the process again. I know thats not what you wanted to hear...but liquid on those things is a nightmare and you just never know where some of it went. A complete drying is in order...if it was a sticky liquid like soda....even when "dry" it can still short it out. If it was water...double check you got all the water...then let it sit out for a day.
