WATER, SODA OR COFFEE SPILLED ON YOUR COMPUTER?

Those are among your laptop’s worse enemies! Just a little bit of such liquids spilled on your laptop’s keyboard can damage or destroy your machine or cause you to lose data. Act fast and call us at (619) 794-4774!

 

The best way to prevent damage from a mix of liquid and electronics is to keep them as far apart as possible.

Keep your laptop far away from cups of coffee, glasses of water, and cans of soda. But in the real world, stuff happens. If you have a choice of poisons, take the water spill. A hot cup of coffee, a cold glass of soda, or a glass of wine are each bad news; all of them are slightly acidic. Acidic liquids are nastier than nearly neutral water because the acid can corrode metal contacts. And both coffee and soda can become gummy and sticky as they dry. But we can still clean it up and probably fix it if you act fast!

Here’s the drill for an emergency recovery from a spill:

1. If you have your machine plugged into wall current, turn off the power at the circuit breaker in your home or office.

If you’re running the machine on battery power, it’s still operating, and you don’t see sparks, hear odd noises, or smell burnt electrical components, shut your laptop down through the normal Windows process.

If something is obviously wrong with the machine, turn it off immediately by depressing the Off switch or by removing the battery.

2. If you haven’t done so in emergency mode, remove the AC adapter and the battery, and set them aside.

3. Disconnect any external devices (such as a mouse) attached to the USB, FireWire, serial, or other ports.

4. Put your computer upside down, and let any liquid leak from the keyboard and other components.

7. Please give us a call as fast as possible! Call us at (619) 794-4774 so we can help you save your computer.

WARNING: Remember to never try to turn the computer on before it’s professionally cleaned. You can damage parts, lose data or totally fry your computer.

Don’t risk losing everything you have by trying to fix it on your own. You need to always keep in mind that even though a computer may turn on after a spill, that doesn’t mean that you are free from damaging the computer.

An experienced technician will fully disassemble the computer to get access to each individual component so we can properly clean them before reassembling and testing to assess the damage.
