I spilled 12 ounces of Dr. Pepper on my laptop yesterday when I went to move a few things out of the way. I upended it and dried ii off almost immediately but now my computer will run about 30-45 minutes and then automatically puts itself through shutdown and turns off. I can use it again in about an hour. It seems to be getting better but I do not know if it will recover--I hope so since this was an expensive one and I do not have the money right now to grab a replacement.
Anyone else do this and have a good tale to tell or did I just screw up?
What is your WTF did I do that for moment?
My laptop had kool-aid spilled on it and my son dumped a cup of kool-aid on it. When that happened I tipped my computer over so the kool-aid can drain out of the key boards and everything. It ended up making my key board sticky so I took the keyboard pieces off and cleaned the keys and the keyboard with rubbing alcohol because it just evaporates. I left my computer upside down for about a couple hours so it could dry in the inside.
My laptop worked after I let it sit or a while. I would also be careful because ants loved my computer with it being sticky and sugary. My laptop did work after that with no problems but about 3-4 months later my hard drive went bad. But I found one on amazon for $15.
I also took the battery out and let it dry separately.
My laptop is still working to this day. The kool-aid incident happened over a year ago.
Hope it helps! Sorry about your computer.
