Do not attempt to switch the ds on and store it in a warm / dry location for a couple of weeks. This may sort the problem. If you have tried several time to switch it on this probably will have shorted the board and caused permanent damage.
Hope this helps

I own a mac notebook. Actually this is my second one. Last year around this time it quite working and when I brought it in to have a tech look at it he said there was water damage. Now it has happened...

you haven't listed any symptoms, so it's hard to say, but water damage is typically caused by spilling drinks on it. If you post with more details on the issue, a better answer might be given.

How to get rid of hiccups

1. Get a glass of water. 2. While holding the glass and making sure not to spill the water, bend forward at your waist at an almost 90 degree or perpendicular angle. 3. With the glass in front of your mouth, drink at the opposite side of the glass. If done correctly, this would make you bend your head forward as you drink. It would seem like you're drinking in an upside down manner. 4. After 3 or 4 gulps of water, stand up straight and it's a surefire that your hiccups are gone!

A drink as spilled in my car now my radio doesn't come on how much will it cost to be fixed or can I do something on my own?

Hi Jasmine, I'm glad to help!

Jasmine, usually when a drink is spilled and something doesn't work then your first step would be to get a 12 volt test light turn the key on and check all the fuses on the vehicle, under the hood and inside the car. If you find one or more blown replace them with the same amp fuse and see if your radio works. If it still doesn't work then it may have damaged something inside the radio and you'll need to replace it. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Jasmine.

I have a nokia c5 mobile, everytime i'm on the phone to someone the volume during the call is very low though the volume is maxed out. This did not happen before.

If you spilled water or any drinks or liquid on your cell phone, or if it was in the bathroom while you were taking a shower, it is possible that the audio is damaged. I spilled a little bit of water on my cell phone and had the same problem.

all liquids are enemy of any IC equipments.....
(many have this dirty habbit of drinking Tea/Coffee/Beer etc while working with their notebooks/laptops.....)
on PC..... the liquids normaly spill on to the keyboard/mouse which is seperate from the CPU...
can replace the keyboard of a PC with just few $$$
but with notebooks the main circuit/motherboard is just below the keyboard.....
once a liquid just goes thru the holes on the keyboard....and short circuits the ICs...chips...etc

I need a new mother board my mother board was

The first thing when spilling drink on your electronics is to remove ALL power.

Then wash the circuits with DISTILLED, de-ioniozed water till all traces of the spillage is gone. Next driop dry with one corner down and finally let dry a few days.

The only damage the spillage usually can do is electrolysis from the power source. Circuit boards are washed with water during manufacturing. Use DE_IONIZED !!!

Laptop keyboard not operational

If you replaced the keyboard with a Dell replacement 1501 keyboard and it still doesn’t work then yes the motherboard will probably have to be replaced. If your son spilled water on the laptop it could clear up after it completely dries. If it was juice, soft drink or sport drink the laptop could develop other issues. The syrup in these kinds of drinks don’t evaporate, they just remain there and accumulate foreign particles like dust, hair, dirt and eventually start to corrode electrical contacts like acid. Similar to the terminal posts on a car battery.

CTRL Buttons Not Working

There is an IC that translates key-presses into a usable datastream and it may be part of the keyboard assembly since many of them come from a few manufacturers. The spill has either disabled or damaged that chip and unless you are adventurous and want to try removing it and bathing in distilled water, allowing it to dry for several days, you will have to have it replaced. DIY may not cure the problem anyhow as the chip might have been damaged as mentioned.
This shouldn't  cost more than $100 US to replace; the keyboards cost likely under $10 US from the original maker.

PC damaged by water spill

Presuming that the water spilled on the actual pc, and it is no longer functioning whatsoever, you should contact the manufacturer (dell in your case) if you still have a warranty on it.
