Turn off the macbook and allow it to dry completely. If you feel comfortable you can remove the touch pad pretty easily to ensure it dries completely. If this does not work your can order a replacement fairly cheaply.

Dot s touchpad not responding


Use an usb mouse to select control panel and then select device management. From there you need to select the mouse and from there select the mouse and right click on it. Select to uninstall the device. Then close all screens and shut down computer. Unplug the usb mouse and restart the computer. If after it completes loading and it doesn't work the you will need a new touch pad. But if it does work it means windows had an corrupt update which caused the problem. Thanks Igor!

I spilled I tea on my Gateway FX keyboard and mousepad. The keys are working now but I'm worried they will get sticky. I cleaned up as much as possible by patting with a towel to soak up the tea. ...


Before you do anything, unless it is already dried, (turn it off first!) turn the laptop upside down and gently tap the back to coax any liquid out. Then do NOT turn it on until it is totally dried. You can clean the keys and pad it with a DAMP (NOT wet) cloth with plain soap and water. Be careful not to get any water down into the keyboard itself so it doesn't short it out. However this will not clean whatever liquid may have gone inside. Hopefully none did else you could end up with a bigger problem...

Try disabling the touch pad and using an external mouse. If this works, then the touch pad is bad. Could be something got spilled on it or it could just be bad.

Pointer on track pad moves on its own. it does not move along with finger and goes in jerky direction elsewhere.


did water get on the track pad? Try connecting an external mouse to get control over your pointer, and navigate to system preferences/track pad. See if you can play around with the settings, but if the external mouse works ok, it sounds like water may have come in contact with your track pad.

Spilt water on mouse. Now red light on


if the mouse is working properly then you might just want to leave it, is it a rechargable mouse?

If you do want to try and fix it , you could try carefully opening it, you should not need to use much if any force and then make sure everything inside is dry, using a hairdryer on low heat can be useful.

there is a chance the water has damaged the electronics of the mouse and so you might not be able to fix the problem.

Glass water was spilt on it, emerceny download


Listen you must take it immediately to the shop to get it repaired. This says LG if i'm not mistaken so take it to the LG service centre or any good shop because only someone really good can now save your phone. It takes about a week or two for the clogged water to start rusting the components. It's going to happen for sure as the water will not evaporate. The worst thing is your phone will look like it's working fine for a while and a few minor gliches here and there and just when you feel your phone has salvaged the day something will happen. It happened to my moto rokr e8. I dropped coffee on it and after 10 days the screen just went blank. So go to a service centre and say liquid/water damage and see if it can be repaired before it's too late.
