THi site teaches you how to fix your laptp when you spill things on it. I have tried it with an older 1999 laptop and it does work...

I know nothing at all about laptops, but I have been known to take my keyboard into the shower and wash it! After letting it dry REALLY REALLY good, it worked just fine. My SIL told me about this trick, and since the keyboard was ruined the way it was, I figured I had nothing to lose.
Keyboard + pepsi and/or squirrel pee = BAD
Above keyboard + shower = GOOD

Thanks, Helen. I'm going to try to pry my keys off tomorrow and clean the inside of mine out. Too many nuts inside of it :twisted:

Laptop Spills & Pee Stains

I've always cleaned mine by removing the keys. Takes forever, lol. In between I just turn it upside down & shake it good then vacuum it. I've heard compressed air in the can works good to blow stuff out too.

btw, My daughter saved her cell phone after it fell from the edge of the tub into water :roll: I know, I know, but how do you supervise them when they are in the tub? Anyway, The phone was all screwed up, but she buried it in a plastic container of uncooked white rice. Took 2 or three days, and she may have changed out the rice, I don't know. She would often reach in and turn the phone and recover it with the rice. But it works fine now :cool:

No problem. I can admit that I'm a klutz and I know remedies for every klutzy thing that has happened to me. I used to spill milk in my laptop ALL the time.......

The first hour I owned my first computer, I spilled chocolate milk on the keyboard. ':multi:'
Turned it upside down in a flash and spent the rest of the evening going over it with q-tips. We cover our home keyboards with saran wrap.

<--- Bought a new keyboard last month due to brothers thinking it would be funny to put noodles in between the keys of the old one because I hate spagehetti.

<--- Took the spaghetti keyboard, ran around and bashed them both over the head with it. It did not take care of getting the spaghetti out, the sauce ruined the keyboard.

I love my brothers! :roll:
