Occasionally I have computers come in will spills. I have seen water, coffee and even cough syrup! Yea that was not pretty. The number one mistake that people make after spilling something liquid on their computer is to, drum roll please, turn it it on. It’s human nature to see if it still works.
If you have a spill happen to your computer and you haven’t turned it on yet, please don’t. First disconnect the battery and the power cord. If the computer was turned on you want to turn it off as soon as possible. Don’t move the computer.
The liquid inside can can short out the motherboard and cause permanent damage. Most of the time spills can be fixed rather easily as long as the computer is left off. The computer needs to be disassembled and dried off. It’s a time consuming job, but it can be done. If you have a spill and need assistance, give us a call we’d be happy to serve you.
