Dell Latitude cpx

I have a dell latitude cpx laptop and a beer was spilled on it. I am trying to get it to power up but it's not working. The power light turns on, the hard drive light turns on for about half a second then goes out, the three keyboard lights turn on for about two seconds then go out, and the hard drive sounds like it starts up but no indication or lights on the original monitor and an external one. The laptop also powers down by itself after about 30 seconds. Any suggestions would be appreciated, thank you

Try to connect and external keyboard to it
with the external monitor.
If the shortcut is in the keypads where most off the beer propably came in contact.
will now be seen if its boots up.
If it boots up with external keyboard the ptoblem is in the beer soaked keyboard.
change or clean the keyboard with isoprophanol
to dissolve moisture and beer.
This is the solution. Please vote!!!

When trying to start up my dell latitude CPX nothing happens, and when I plugg up the wall charger, there is a blinking light but still no power


A blinking light normally indicates a dead battery; however, since it does not power up when power is plugged in, I would suspect that the power jack on the motherboard needs to be repaired. This would explain the lack of power and the inability to charge the battery. I replace powerjacks a lot. Good luck. -Carlos:

My Dell latitude Cpx laptop just does not power up, just flickers


I had the same problem on my CPx. It turned out to be a bad memory module. With bad (or no) RAM, nothing is going anywhere, so it immediately shuts down. New memory, no problems.
