HP/Compaq :: Spilled Water On My Laptop - It Wasn't Turned On But The Ports Were Wet

Oct 31, 2009

It was placed vertically in a bag and my grandma spilled water from a flower vase on my laptop. Good thing it wasn't turned on but The ports were wet and I wiped them with tissue.

I placed the laptop upside down in front of a fan to hopefully let all the water inside evaporate. I also dismantled the battery.

Dell :: I Spilled Water On My Laptop

Dec 15, 2008

Wouldn't you know it, I have been clumsy as can be today; I spilled three drinks. The first two were no real big deal, but the last one was right on the top of my 1420! Before I could do anything, it shut down and I don't know if it was in my mind or what, but I thought I could hear faint sizzling. Now I'm waiting for it to dry only so I can confirm I am hosed. Looks like I am stuck with a minimum of $200 for a new motherboard provided I haven't fried anything else. What a crappy end to a day...

I'm switching to sippy cups!

Was searching for the water on my desk last night and completely knocked it over on my inspiron 1520 (was still on). I immediately disconnected all the power and air dried it with a fan. Now it won't boot when I turn it on and I noticed that the fan doesn't turn on either.

Dell :: Spilled Water On My E1705- Keyboard

Sep 14, 2007

I accidentally spilled some water on my laptop this evening. i dried everything out and everything seems to be working fine..except for that my left "Ctrl" key is acting really weird. Something is making it seem like it's being constantly held down (although it physically isn't). The only way I can disable this is through the On-Screen Keyboard in Windows XP. But after hitting the particular Ctrl key, it goes back to being held down again. Is there anything I can do to fix this? Or is this something that wouldn't cost too much to repair?

Sony :: Spilled Water On My Vaio... Is It Really Dead

Apr 8, 2010

night before last a cup of water spilled over my keyboard. I quickly picked laptop up, dried it upside down then left it running. About an hour later I went to type something in and realised the keyboard wasnt working. I turned it off and took the battery and power supply off.

The next day I turned it back on and it was coming on but the keyboard still not working (if you press one key then another key would be pressed and 6 and w were pressed the whole time) so then we lifted the keyboard up and dried the area underneath with a hairdryer- only saw a few drops of water. Then tried turning it bakc on and it would come on but the keyboard still not working.

Then few hours later I tried turning it on again, and now, although the green light comes on and it sounds like it's gonna start, the screen is completely black.

Dell :: Spilled Soda On My Laptop, Any Hope?

Apr 21, 2009

I knocked some soda onto my computer while doing homework, it was on the top right hand corner of the keyboard. Its an e1505 from a litte over 2&1/2 years ago (warranty is out).

I let it dry under a fan for an hour, then left it another hour. It worked fine, but 1 speaker didn't work.

I turned it off, but I tried to turn it back on to print something about an hour later and it wouldn't turn on. It said "no bootable device". It would run a dell diagnostic though

HP/Compaq :: Spilled Iced Tea In 8510p

Jun 9, 2009

around a month ago i spilled some iced tea in my laptop. first i thought it was gone, but then i dried it out and it mostly works. i turned it on within the 24 hour period, but it mostly works.

it boots up and i can install the OS. problem is that whenever i move the touchpad it's like the left mouse button is always clicked and it's a constant select on everything i scroll over. i tried replacing the touchpad and using only a USB mouse but it doesn't work.

new touchpad does the same thing and USB mouse won't work in the OS. it will work during installing the OS, but once in the OS it stops working.

HP/Compaq :: Water Damage On HDX18

Feb 7, 2010

I have an issue on my 8 month old HP HDX18 laptop....my 3 yr old son was watching a video and accidently spilled 1/4 glass of water on the laptop.

The lappie shut off and wouldn't turn back on. I quickly disconnected it from the wall and removed the battery. Then I opened up the case up, took apart the mem, HDD and left it outside in my backyard today to dry up and then put everything together and booted up. Laptop boots up usual now BUT the wireless/volume are disabled. Some of the arrow keys are also not functioning normal either. While its obvious its not a total h/w failure, I have some doubts on the mobo/keyboard.

I do have the HP warranty but I'm pretty sure it doesn't cover water damage.

Acer :: Is This Excessive Battery Drain (while The Laptop Is TURNED OFF)

Jan 1, 2010

I have an Acer 4810TZ timeline (SU4100 processor). I had charged the battery up to 100% and then left on an 11 day vacation. When I came back, I found the battery to have only a 16.7% charge left on it. Is this an excessive lost of battery over an 11 day period? My laptop was left shut down (it was not in sleep or hibernate mode). I would think the drain on the battery would be minimal.

Is my battery defective or is this normal? I've had the laptop for about 2 months.

Acer :: 8930g (from 2008) Laptop Suddenly Turned Off And Now Won't Boot

Oct 12, 2009

Acer here. It's an older 8920g, but it has a 18.4inch screen and an Nvidia 9500 GS card

Basically here's how it goes:

Laptop unplugged, full battery or near full, placed on a bed (you can see where this is going), playing emulator games

Later, it suddenly turns off.

Upon trying to turn it back straight away, the laptop turns on, but only a blank screen is present.

I recommended to leave laptop off for 2 odd hours. Tried again after 2 hours, same result.

I got hold of the laptop now, basically it turns on, then suddenly flicks off and then back on again, and does.... nothing. The audio/media pad responds though (i.e. hold and mute button is responsive). I tried to take out the battery and turn it on, nothing.

Then I put the battery back in and turn it on, same result. Screen remains black throughout all scenarios.

HP/Compaq :: DV6000- Spilled Only A Small Amount Of Tea On The Keyboard

Jul 23, 2009

My son spilled only a small amount of tea on the keyboard. knowing what could come out of it, I turned it off right away. After cleaning and drying for a few hours, i turned it on, and managed to a couple of times. The next day I tried to turn it on again, and as it was displaying Bios info, I saw one of the flat cables under the keyboard melt slightly. I turned it of right away. This cable is one of the two coming out of the panel over the keyboard, to be exact the left one, from the on/off button to the motherboard.

Bought the cable online, and still does not work. I CAN hear the computer turn on, the lights are all as usual, and boot and even go into windows, but I cant see anything on the screen. I have seen a really really dark and dim shadow of the boot, even the windows logo, but its almost invisible.

Dell Inspiron 15 7537 :: Laptop Freezes When Turned On Or Resume From Sleep

Mar 15, 2014

I received a new Inspiron 15 7000 yesterday, and am experiencing the following issue:

Approximately every other time I try to either a) Turn On the laptop or b) Resume from sleep - the laptop freezes.

This is often accompanied by the backlit keyboard being lit and staying on. Nothing else happens. No screen etc. or other response. The only way to get the laptop to work is to hold down the power button to kill the machine, and try again. This usually works and the system starts in a seconds.

HP Pavilion DV7 :: Devices Not Recognized On All USB Ports On Laptop

Feb 11, 2011

I keep getting USB Device not recognized on all USB ports on my laptop.
I am running Windows 7 (recently did a restore to clean up computer) service pack 1.
I refreshed the BIOS
I tried deleting all drivers, shutting down, taking out the battery and restarting
I tried refreshing all USB drivers
I tried adjusting the power settings to ensure that all power save mode on USB devices was disabled
Still no luck. Once in a while I can plug something in and it will work for a bit then it becomes disconnected. I think this might be a hardward problem as no software intervention has worked.

Dell :: Latitude E6430 / USB Ports Don't All Work And Docking Station USB Ports Do Not Work

Mar 1, 2014

I've installed the latest BIOS upgrade, updated the USB and intel chipset drivers.  How do I get these working?
