Accidentally spilled water over my keyboard and now it won’t turn on?

Okay, before you call me an idiot, I already know.

It was a half a cup of tap water and it spilled all over my keyboard while it was on & connected to a charger.

I dried it out, fully from what I know of, and let it sit by itself on the desk flat down so extra water could get out. Thing is dry as the desert. I turned it on and the keyboard light activated, I can hear the fan, but the screen isn’t turning at all. Any ideas? I can’t afford a replacement and I need this to do school & work due to the pandemic resulting in my school closing for remote learning.

As you know water and electronics and electricity are not a good mix.

The impurities in the water causes corrosion and provides circuit paths for the electricity which were not in the laptop’s operating design and could damage the components.

The corrosion is ongoing until it is cleaned away

First do not turn on your laptop and then you need to disconnect the battery as soon as possible from the laptop systemboard to minimize any further damage.

Then you need to inspect the rest of the laptop and clean all the affected parts using Isopropyl Alcohol 99%+ (available from electronics parts stores) to remove all traces of corrosion and water. Do not use "rubbing alcohol" as in some cases this is only 70% IPA or less, can contain scents or other additives and is not as effective. If you do use it check the label to verify the amount of IPA. The higher the IPA percentage the better

Here is a link that describes the process.

Electronics Water Damage

As always with electronics, especially surface mounted PCBs be gentle when handling and especially when brushing away the corrosion. You do not want to remove any components from the board.

Hopefully after you have done all this the laptop might possibly work correctly again.

Here is a link to the hardware maintenance manual for the laptop which should be of some help in the dis-assembly process so that the laptop can be inspected and cleaned etc

If this process seems too daunting, contact a reputable, professional laptop repair service, experienced in liquid damage repair and ask for a quote for a repair. If you decide to do this, do it sooner than later.

Yup! It worked like a charm!The one issue I had at the moment was trying to turn it on, since it left the power button light on but not the screen. Turns out holding it down to turn it off for 10 seconds and holding it down for 10 seconds again to turn it on will force it to work. Thank you so much, it means a lot! <3
