Make sure you don't turn it on. Turning on the motherboard in wet condition will cause damage to it.

The best thing to do is dry out the Motherboard; you can use some tissue papers to gently wipe the water on the board and then you can use some hair drier or blower to dry the Mother board(Make sure you remove all the components and do this separately). Once it is dried let them all dry further for 24-48 hours and once you think it is completely dried up re-fix the components together and try to boot up.

In most cases this works. Make sure your ram slots, pci slots, etc are completely dried up (this is the reason why we need to remove all the components before drying up).

Hope this helps.
Best Regards

Cimbali m3 problem with mainboard

Marion boards are expensive so before grabbing anther it's best to check every aspect of the machine and board. Water damage, steam leaks caused shorts, loose plugs, Rodent damage, etc. Way to many things to go bad before a board replacement. Always do a PROM reset to go back to basic settings. Pulling board also replica all connections. You take a chance of burning out 2nd board. The display goes bad as it's always near water and steam. Do a visual inspection of board foe burns, cracks, water stains, coffee trails. Check programming to see if you can manually activated each item. Boards do go out but usually with a bang. Keep looking. Mark

Dropped off a glas of water on my toshiba laptop and now it's not longer turning on

Given that your laptop is not water resistant, the water probably leaked onto the mainboard, fried it thus rendering it unusable. Replace any of the fried part (usually the mainboard is one-piece, so sending it to advance circuit technician is advised).

I spilled a teaspoon of water on my acer aspire netbook and I wiped up the water and shut down the computer. This was two hours ago. I used canned air to make sure I dried out the water. I tried turning...


first I would let it dry for day or two.
This is most probably due to your mainboard.
Is there any beep tone? Or any sign of activity on your monitor?
You could test if by taking out your RAMs for example. If you turn it on then, you should hear a beep code. If you dont, it is your mainboard..

My camera was in sea water and damage mainboard. Can & brought new mainboard?

That's not all that was damaged. Salt water is very corrosive and is still eating at the other parts of your camera not to mention getting in between the lens elements.

Samsung u600 water damage

Be sure that you don't power on the unit after it was dropped down into water.

Dry it first especially the parts inside must be dry and no water or any wet in the mainboard.

There's a possibility that you can still used your cp, but you have tobe sure for the 2nd time again i say this "the unit should be fully dry".
