How long ago did this happen?
Remove the power adapter and the battery.
Remove any removable covers from the bottom of the laptop and look for any signs of liquid. Leave the covers off for a couple of days to allow any liquid or moisture to dry up.

Press and hold in the power button for up to 60 seconds to discharge the laptop.

When you are sure there is no more moisture present try starting the laptop.

If it still won't turn on something may have shorted out during the spill and you will probably have to take it to a repair shop.

    The cost will depend on what they find wrong with it. If the motherboard shorted you're probably better off just getting a new laptop.

My samsung s5230 got tea spilt on it. won.t turn on.


Take the battery off. Leave the cover off. Put the phone in a bag of rice. Make sure it's completely surrounded by rice. Leave for at least a day. Two would be better. Clean the phone off, reinsert the battery, plug it in to power, and try it. If it still won't power on, getting it wet with the battery in has shorted out components and blown them. If it does work, all's well.

Good luck!

Tea spilt ok Thinkpad Keyboard


I'm sorry, but there are no alternatives, and you may have bigger issues than just the keyboard. If the tea seeped past the keyboard, and onto the motherboard, which is directly bellow the keyboard, then by trying to start it you may have fried the motherboard. You would be surprised how long it takes for a laptop to dry out, 6 hours is not near long enough. You will also want to clean it, the sugar in the tea can cause corrosion of the circuitry on the motherboard. I'm going to recommend that you take it in for a professional diagnostic and cleaning. This way you will know the exact extent of the damage.

Hp 530 laptop = dead no lights/nothing...power supply reads 19.2 volts with meter.son spilled drink on keyboard..suggestions?


Remove battery and power. Take apart as much as possible. wash any wet/sticky parts in de-ionised water (as used for topping up batteries), allow to thoroughly dry before re-assembling and powering up. Leave at least 24 hrs to dry.

Try not to get circuit board too wet, but if it does not work then you have nothing to lose!


Liquid on keyboard can be very difficult to fix as damp gets under the membrane - even if computer works the keyboard may not but you could always use USB keyboard.
If you have any Silica Gel packets, put notebook and all parts in a plastic bag with them to absorb all moisture (but make sure no powder gets into the components).

Good luck!

Dell d600


I would completely disassemble it (it really isn't that hard), let it dry out, then put it back together and see what happens.

Please help with my Motorazr


You should get some silica gel packets (the small packets that say "do not eat" and come in boxes of new shoes, or purses) - take the phone apart as much as you can without damaging it and put the phone and the silica packets in a sealed plastic bag and let it sit as long as you can. The silica will pull the moisture out of the phone. I've heard rice works for this as well.
