My son spilt soda on my hp530. I took it apart completely and I am letting it dry. When I had it plugged in the light would show that the battery is charged but when I tried to push the power button nothing happened. Any ideas what the main issue might be? I use this computer daily and not sure how to fix it, please helpp

Remove battery and power. Take apart as much as possible. wash any wet/sticky parts in de-ionised water (as used for topping up batteries), allow to thoroughly dry before re-assembling and powering up. Leave at least 24 hrs to dry.

Try not to get circuit board too wet, but if it does not work then you have nothing to lose!


Liquid on keyboard can be very difficult to fix as damp gets under the membrane - even if computer works the keyboard may not but you could always use USB keyboard.
If you have any Silica Gel packets, put notebook and all parts in a plastic bag with them to absorb all moisture (but make sure no powder gets into the components).

Good luck!

Laptop won't power up without battery, needs 135W adapter


The ASUS power adapter is below spec and it may damage the adapter because the HP is drawing 45 W more power than it can deliver and will cause it to overheat.
The 17" HP requires 18.5 or 19 volts depending upon the model of the HP laptop (check the power requirements on the label on the bottom of the laptop). If the ASUS adapter doesn't deliver this voltage, it most likely won't power up the HP laptop.
Use the power supply/adapter from the other 15" HP. If this HP's adapter has a voltage output of 19 volts and the 17" laptop requires 18.5 volts, don't worry a voltage difference of 0.5 volts, the only problem is whether the power plug will fit into the power socket of the 17" HP laptop.

Spilled pop on laptop now completely dead


YEP! Walk away from the laptop. You killed it! And it will be costly to fix!
Estimate that at least a keyboard, and probably a motherboard will have to be replaced. That is almost the whole computer. Better bet- buy a new Toshiba Toughbook - that is practically impervious to the spilled drink. But expensive!

Wont turn on but when I click the power button three lights flicker three times.


Remove the battery and try to power up. If good, replace the battery or just leave it off. If no good, test the power adapter with an electrical meter (the centre pin of the adapter is the positive-red lead of the meter. If the adapter is not putting out 18 or 19 volts, then that is the issue and you should try another adapter. If this fails, contact HP support, and ask them this question specifically - "Does this problem qualify my laptop for a one-time warranty enhancement?" HP has known issues with some of their laptop mainboards and will sometimes repair the unit free of charge. Hope this helps!

My son has spilt coke on the laptop 1 key not working O


If you spill drinks on a keyboard, something is bound to break, and apparantly only the O key did... The only way to fix it is to get a new keyboard, I'm sorry. I hope this helps, Yannick.

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.

Completely dead


Check the power adapter connection or the socket. Recently my power adapter socket gave me the same problem. When I check from the adapter using voltmeter it's seems to be working.

But when i plugged it in the laptop, nothing happens. So I google around for help and found this tutorial after following the suggestions I managed to revive my notebook.
