Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Spilled coffee over an HP pavillion dv7. I turned it off maybe 2 minutes after I cleaned up the mess with a towel. It seemed to work fine. I tried putting it back on later but it beeped quite a bit so I turned it off for a while. Rotated it and now it's drying. Does this mean the computer is finished? It is almost brand new, no warranty on..

My hp pavillion dv7-3079wm shuts off after startup

If you saw that kind of damage, the temperature rose to critical levels in the processor ic causing thermal runner way. Remove the old thermal grease with rubbing alcohol and a paper towel, clean the processor until spotless and the heatsink that mates with it, use high grade thermal grease for computers and a apply a thin coat to both pieces and assemble, make sure any dust or dirt is removed and not blocking vents, compressed air is great for this. If you are very lucky the chip has remained intact, processors are very robust.

Spilled coffee on my touch pad and want to clean it. how do i take the case off to do so?

If you want to clean that touchpad, you have to dis-assemble your laptop which is very critical and you might damage the other parts or connectors. Ask for technical assistance near you.

Got tea on my laptop

As i understand, the system seems to be working fine after the spillage ... there shouldnt be any issues other than the keyboard being sticky .
If the tea had seeped in then it could have fried the Motherboard. However , you could reach HP for support incase of any issues , if you tell them that the tea was spilled on the system then they might not cover the issue under warranty.

How to clean spill out of keyboard on hp pavilion dv7 1245dx

Best thing to do is to take the keyboard out of the laptop. There is usually a top cover above the keyboard that needs to come off. Then there is some screws holding in the keyboard, unscrew those and then unhook the ribbon part of the keyboard off of the motherboard.

Then at that point take a paper towel or washcloth with glass cleaner and clean all around where the spillage is.

Also clean off the keyboard is well and let it sit for a day so it can dry out.

Then put the keyboard back and see if the keyboard is working properly, if not then you'll need to replace it.

I'm afraid you're going to have to replace the keyboard. I really like my Dr. Pepper, and have had to replace three keyboards in two different laptops because of spillage, maybe one of these days I'll learn. Even the smallest amount of liquid will kill a keyboard, and the thing to keep in mind after a spill, is that the keyboard will either work, and may require some cleaning, or not work at all, and require replacement.
