Question about IBM ThinkPad T42 Notebook
I have an IBM Think pad (T 60). I spilled some water on my laptop a few days back and now it works intermittently. I have tried drying it with a dryer and looks like it is completely dry now but I still get the intermittent starting issue.
Your help would be appreciated.
Did you spill the water while you were using it or turn it on shortly after the spill? If so, you fried something. It's electronic, it doesn't mix with liquid at all, you're lucky you don't have a nice expensive door stop, use a bottle with a screw on cap if you absolutely have to have a drink while working with your laptop. Also it takes days, if not a week, for a laptop to completely dry out inside, a dryer isn't going to do much good unless you take it apart. Either deal with the issues or take it to a shop and have it diagnosed. It's going to be a hardware issue consisting of the motherboard.
