Question about Dell Latitude Cp, Cpi, Cpx, C600, C800, Inspiron 3800 8000 4000 601212 CD-ROM Drive
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!!!
