First thing is to not try powering the laptop on after the liquid 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 liquid on the circuit boards & on other components. On circuit boards, liquid 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 liquid seeped into them. Dry them if needed.
Check the hard drive's connector to the motherboard for any liquid damage & clean it.
When you are done, re-assemble back the laptop.
If the liquid fell on the keyboard & you found out that the keyboard is no longer working, then you will have to replace the keyboard.

Tea got spilt on it. It worked for a few min. then screen dark and won't light up. Everything else works. What do I need to replace?


Karen...

Even "clear" Water left with electricity will continue to cause damage... It must be dried before power is restored.

There is an immediate and urgent need to get ALL the power removed from any ELECTRICAL device that has moisture exposure.

If it was tea with milk... (mine was coffee with cream & sugar... full cup turned over on my DELL PC in 2002)...

I learned right there how to pull the battery... pulled the hard drive
rinsed it all the rest with clean water... and again with 90% rubbing alcohol... gently blew everything dry with compressed air and let it all dry for several days... turning parts over each day.

Three days later I reassembled it all back together
and it is STILL running TODAY.

Hope this helps!!

How do you make a proper cup of English tea using a teapot?


There's more to making the tea than just shoving a few bags in a tea pot and adding hot water. Lovers of English tea believe that you need to warm the pot beforehand and let the tea brew before you start. Take a look at this article on the Yorkshire Tea website that gives a good run down of how to make tea.

My Friend bought a Dell insparian 1545 laptop and one day a cup of tea feel down on touch pad integrated mouse. Touchpad mouse stopped working after that. She had bought the laptop on 10th December, 2009....


She will have to take it to a repair shop and have the touchpad replaced. This is going to cost her about $200, since the warranty has expired a few days ago. Unless of course she had got extra warranty, in that case it will be free.

Tea spilt on Laptop


If you can put up with the sticky keys and they still work then it is OK.
Otherwise you need to replace the keyboard.

Keyboard not working


What a drag! Did the tea have any sugar in it? Anything except water or plain tea won't wash off too easily. Dirt, dust and moisture don't clean off easliy. The question is, did any moisture get onto the motherboard? I've had to wash off a few contaminiated circuit boards and it took a few good soakings in warm water and a tooth brush over all the contacts to really remove the residue. From Coke to salt water I've gotten stuff to work but it has to be very clean. I suggest getting a new keyboard if the laptop is worth it and seeing if that works. It is probably salvageable but all the contacts need to be inspected.

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.

My keyboard


If you've spilt tea down your laptop you could have shorted something out.

You could try a new keyboard, or take out your old one and see if you can clean it up a bit, and try and clean the tea from inside.
