You can try to open it and clean the corroded parts on the logic board with a brush and alcohol or hydrogen peroxide. If that doesn't help, there are logic boards available on ebay and guides that will show you how to open your ipod replace the logic board. I work for a Laptop repair shop in NYC and deal with this scenario frequently.

If it didn't blow sparks and it was just water, remove the battery and put it in a nice warm and dry place to dry out completely and then cross your fingers. There is not really anything inside a laptop computer that water just by itself will damage, but if it was on and the water shorted something out you could have problems. If after letting it dry out it won't come on, it can always be sent back to the manufacturer or taken to a local authorized rep and be fixed. Good luck and be thankful it was not juice or soda.....

We spilled water on top of the keyboard of an acer aspire one, when turning on there is a beeping sound and won't boot up


You're going to want to let the machine dry for a while - take out the major components (HDD, RAM, Battery, etc) and let it air dry for as long as possible. Check it carefully for corrosion after that - you'll want to check the battery terminals, ram contacts, etc very carefully, as they'll be easy places to spot corrosion.

After the machine is thoroughly dried, it MAY power back on. If so...use it to check up on your warantee, because you really want to go ahead and get the motherboard changed out if you can. It's really the only answer. Easy sources for replacement motherboards is ebay

Spilled coffee on D600 notebook, power supply turns off when plugged in after had the notebook cleaned. is my notebook not fixable?


When the power supply turns off when plugged into the laptop it is indicating that there is a short. Remove your battery and try connecting the power adapter again. If the problem persists your motherboard will most likely need to be replaced.
There are companies out there that will repair motherboards however if the laptop was on when the spill occurred there is little to know chance that the motherboard is repairable.

BATTERY WON´T CHARGE ON DELL C600


It is possible the battery where the contacts from the laptop fit into or the gold colored contacts themselves need to be repaired. Worst case, the spill short circuited the contacts on the board, in which case you will have to replace the board. I would suggest really cleaning the gold contacts on the laptop and the small slots on the battery itself with a Q-tip with a little bit of rubbing alcohol on it. Please make sure both areas are totally dry before reassembling the battery.

Good Luck,

I spilled a small amount of coffee onto the keyboard while the computer was in use. I immediately turned it upside down and dried it off. I cannot get it to power " on"


Don't power it on. If that is doesn't seem kind of all water proof kind. Take out the battery and the AC power supply. Turn the laptop upside down without closing the screen monitor and let the coffee be out. Dry it/or take it on a reputable shop( I may suggest).

Have it clean. Hope it doesn't fry something inside.

Water spilled on laptop....LCD screen appears fainted...?????


Don't worry, water won't damage your screen permanently and will 'evaporate' in time, but for now you have to live with the effects it has on your screen. It will be more like a few months then days but it will heal in time

Hope This Helps

Laptop speakers not working after water spill, everything else is ok


You stated 'a small amount' and if this is the case, I would leave the power off for a few days, sitting in a warm place to see if your audio returns.

If your water is not too saturated with minerals making it conductive and operating it wet hasn't done any damage, you may luck out.

I have cured some nasty spills (cat urine anyone?) by bathing the device in warm distilled water and allowing it DAYS to dry before restoring power.
