Laptop still works after liquid spill! … for now.

by Lou Horton on November 24, 2013

Sooner or later most frequent computer users have some sort of accident which involves a little bit of liquid splashing on their laptop computer.  While drying the computer off, placing it in a bin of rice etc. may allow the computer to still run.  This is not a permanent fix.  Any sort of moisture left deep within your computer will corrode over time.  Unless you want a surprise in the future where your motherboard is bad, follow these simple steps following any liquid spill:

  1. Immediately shut down the computer following the spill.
  2. Disconnect the power cord from the computer.
  3. Remove the battery from the laptop.
  4. Make an appointment with a qualified technician to have the system looked at.  Before the technician powers up the unit, it should be completely disassembled and cleaned properly.  This not only reduces the possibility of any more immediate damage, but will eliminate the future corrosion that will happen if the liquid spill is left unattended.
