First thing is to not try powering the laptop on after the water fell on it. Next, you should remove the battery off the laptop immediately. When this is done, you should fully disassemble the laptop & thoroughly inspect its inside. Look for any traces of water on the circuit boards & on other components. On circuit boards, water damage appears in the form of whitish traces. These needs to be wiped off. This can be done using a tooth brush moistened with few drops of hand sanitizer liquid.
Check all internal connectors & make sure that no water seeped into them. Dry them if needed.
When you are done, re-assemble back the laptop.
If the water fell on the keyboard & you found out that the keyboard is no longer working, then you will have to replace the keyboard.

STEPS ON HOW TO TROUBLESHOOT MY LAPTOP THAT FELL INTO WATER


As long as you didn't try to turn it on yet AND it was NOT on when it fell in to the water there is a chance it will still work.

Pull the battery, put it in a big container and fill\cover it with rice. The rice will absorb the moisture. Leave it in there for at least 5 days straight and then try it. But just in case have a fire extinguisher ready.

This works with cell phones, maybe you'll get lucky.

The apple appears when turned on but quickly disappears. it fell in te toliet for about 3 seconds.how can i fix it?


If it was working fine before it fell in the toilet, it probably has water damage. Take it to an Apple Store or contact Apple for tech support.

My unlocked iphone 3G won't turn on. Even with holding the home and on button and charging it in the car, computer and laptop. It's completely black


If the phone was soaked in water, you can try to put it inside your container where you put your rice in it for the water to completely dry up. If your phone fell to the ground, you may out of luck and have your phone checked up by an iPhone hardware expert. If those things didn't happen to your iPhone, you can try to press again your home and power buttons until you see the Apple logo. If you have a busted or unresponsive home button, try to press it harder to make it work.

My iphone fell into water


If you check craigslist in your area you can usually find shops that offer water damage repairs. I have known many iPhones to be repaired from water damage fairly inexpensively.

Ipod fell in water


Open the iPod classic and clean and dry it out as much as you can. Here's a guide on how to disassemble an iPod classic. Maybe a tech savy friend can do it for you. If you want to pay to have a service do it for you there are third party iPod Repair Services.

Water fell on my mac


By all means do not turn it on.....u might fry something. Leave it in a dry hot area for like 2 says. Then you might have to take it to Apple because Mac's are very very picky about water, i spilled coke and it fried it!
