Are we talking about a notebook PC? You can take it into a serveman, but they don't do well with getting wet.

I unplugged my computer from the livingroom and moved it to one of the kids bedrooms. After I plugged it back in, the tower doesn't power up. I've switched the power cords with the ones from the monitor...


Look on the back of the tower, up top on the power supply and there may be a reset button or a red switch. Switch it off for a few seconds and them back on. That might work.

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.

Emachine t5026 not power on. replaced psu.


I would test the memory. Also I think some computers will shut down if the fan on top of the CPU quits working. Or maybe one of the other fans or the Hard Drive quit and is drawing too much juice causing the PSU to shut down. It sounds like something may be grounding.

HELP - I have an Acomdata External Hard Drive (I think 160GB). Have used it sucessfully 1x month for all of my kids pictures (about 100GB) for the past year. Just tried to use it with the same power...


Try a different power supply. Also check cables from the Ext. Hard Drive to the computer. If none of that helps and you know how, open the Ext. Hard Drive case and remove the Hard Drive from the case. Connect the Hard Drive to the appropriate BUS and power source inside the computer. You may have to adjust the jumpers, probably to a slave setting. If it still doesn't work then the Hard Drive may be toast. This is the reason I always back up important files onto two different devices. If one fails the info is still on the other one. That is all I can think of right now. Hope you get your kid's picts back.

Hp 530 laptop = dead no lights/nothing...power supply reads 19.2 volts with meter.son spilled drink on keyboard..suggestions?


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!

Location of power supply fan


I have seen those type of power supply, but maybe, you can change the orientation of the PSU? remove the power supply form the casing, re install it with the fan facing downwards.
Hope this helps.

Woke up this morning to find water was spilt on the desk my laptop was sitting on. The laptop was off but the A/C adapter was still plugged in as was the battery. I'm not sure if the keyboard was exposed...


WATER WILL USUALLY DRY OUT WITHIN ONE TO TWO DAYS AND USUALLY THINGS WILL WORK, LIFT UP COMPUTER AND SHAKE TO SEE IF WATER COMES OUT, LEAVE SET UP ON SIDE TO SEE IF WATER DRAINS DOWN AND OUT. MAY HAVE SHORTED OUT THE POWER SUPPLY. ALSO MAKE SURE CHARGER UNIT IS WORKING.. GOOD LUCK

The button under my mousepad on my laptop keeps sticking bad. i spilt some pop on it a few week ago what can i do? can i sort it myself?


If you are good enough in opening the casing of a laptop & then safely closing it back,then you may try opening the casing & the keyboard.The mouse touch pad is usually a seperate unit attached with MB with a thin film cable.You have to carefully remove it from its connector & then try cleaning it with any cleaning spray.I am not very optimistic about it as usually the "touchpad" is a sealed unit & the tiny microswitches will be sealed inside the housing!

Power Problem


It sounds to me like your power unit inside the tower smoked. If you have the time and patience, replacing the power unit isn't to difficult to accomplish. You need to go to your computers manufacture online and download instructions via e-mail. There might have been a power overload that caused it to go. You can also remove all connections and take the whole tower to a repair shop to be tested. Usually $25.00 or less to verify problem. Hope it works.
