If the set was on most likely severe damage by the cold drink and are not that easy to remove. It won;t just dry up like water would but, will leave behind a sticky conductive substance on the board basically shorting it out. Count your losses and purchase another television.

Spilt drink on inspiron 1720. after letting dry


Make sure you DO NOT plug in your lap top to the power out let. This could cause a shock.
You see the Dell media direct, means your CMOS is OK.
But if Windows is not loading means the spill could have damaged your hard drive. I would strongly suggest you take it to a shop where they repair laptops.
This way you may have to replace your hard drive, but save your note book.

Distorted sound - drink spilt


ok..that's helpful..the sound card, so to speak, is embedded on motherboard on these units, so you'll need to replace that entirely(not simple, but not out of the realm of possibility).

I see many cases of spilt coffee/pop/beer/liquid of some sort spilt on laptops at work, and it is rare that good news accompanies it. It is rather impossible to clean out a laptop entirely. Your best bet is to get your data off the hard drive, buy a new laptop, and transfer it over. This may seem harsh, but it really is your best option if you do not wish to lose data.

The bastard laptop won't turn on!


  •  It could be beneficial to unplug the laptop & remove the battery. Let the system sit & dry for a couple days. More than likely you will have to replace the keyboard. Could be more damage that you do not see. If it is a sugary drink like soda, it enjoys tearing up soldered connections. Best guess wouuld be let it dry out. If it doesnt work & replacing the keyboard doesnt fix it, take it in to a service center.
