Question about Computers & Internet
Ugh, sorry you had the accident, but many a laptop has survived such a spill (or in my case spills) and booted to tell the tale.
I'm assuming you now have the machine powered off, if not shut ot down immediately and do not try to restart it until you have done the following. There is kind of a standard procedure for laptop spills that I will provide you.
The suggestions below assume that your nc4200 is no longer under warranty.
Remove anything attached to the machine, battery, cables, external drives, anything. Using a soft, slightly damp (yes damp - got to remove as much of that sugar as possible) cloth blot any liquid on the machine gently, do not rub.
Tilt the laptop gently from side to side to allow any possible liquid to drain out. Do not shake the laptop. The Place the laptop upside down so that any potential remaining liquid will drain out. Hopefully you did not spill this amount of tea 8^).
Secure a regular hair blow dryer. Set it to low and slowly move it back and forth over the keyboard from about six inches and do the same for the rest of the machine, focusing attention to the openings that it has for ventilation. Do this for about five minutes or so.
Now the hard part: Set aside the machine in a warm (not hot place) and wait (at least four hours and if you can wait overnight, even better).
Try booting it with nothing attached. If it still doesn't boot the problem has gone beyond the keyboard and you'll have to consider having it professionally serviced.
Good Luck and thanks for using Fix Ya
