I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Ok.. today has been one of my worst days.. (Skip this long first paragraph if u wanna just go on to my question)

This morning I spilled water on my keyboard... which went psycho, but became ok after i opened it up and blow dried and nature dried it for hours. Right about the time my keyboard got to work again, I spilled my water on my computer. My pc case has fan on top for better airflow, meaning it has a vent there.. and i happened to spill water there.
Being a dumb person I am, I just went to sleep thinking water will dry itself (computer was off at the time of water spill) instead of cleaning inside. About 4 hours later.. i woke up and turned on the computer. It booted fine.. but when Windows screen came up, I saw weird marks on the screen all over. I quickly turned off the computer and opened it up. I felt my way around and felt that... my graphic card had little bit of water on top of it. (Leadtek 7900GT). I quickly used paper towl to dry it and blow dried it with a cool air. I inserted it back in and booted computer again. Everything ran fine. Having being shocked, I constantly monitored temperatures using CPUFAN and graphic card driver... things seemed fine... until i got the BSOD saying something wrong with win32k.sys

After the BSOD, every time my comp boots, it beeps and doesnt start. I drove to Fry's immediately (which is at least 40 min away) to buy a new graphic card..but it was closed (I arrived at 9:50).

Now I just got back and am thinking about... Read more

Hello, after a water spill (about 2 days ago) most of my key's aren't working. also having problems starting up my laptop. it turns on after a while, but always insists going through system recovery. I ordered a new keyboard, but I'm worried about my laptop still

please excuse the bad grammar/punctuation. I'm using an on-screen keyboard.
 

A:Water Spill

Well honestly if the laptop itself is still functioning then that is an accomplishment. With the keyboard being bad yea that is going to have to be replaced. If the computer itself constantly wants to go to system recovery, try reverting the system back to an earlier date through system restore to see if that fixes your problems. If not, you may have an issue regarding the motherboard.

I have a y70-70 touch laptop that I just purchased this past August of 2015 (not even a year old). Around midnight on Friday I accidentally spilled less than half a glass of water on the left half of my keyboard. It took a few seconds to register what happened, then I immediately hit the power button, unplugged my mouse and charger, and grabbed a large bath towel to wipe the water away. I flipped the laptop upside down to try draining any water that may have gotten inside and waited about 20-30 minutes before hitting power button to see if it worked (which I probably should NOT have done). A blue screen appeared, in which Windows gave me options about troubleshooting before the system shut itself down (not the blue screen of death but a regular Windows kind of screen). After that, I left it alone until the next day when I attempted to see if it would work yet again, only this time, the computer didn't even boot up. The only thing that turned on was the fans inside the laptop, which only stayed on until I release the power button. No lights blinking, no other normal humming or whurring a laptop would typically make, just the fans. I was confused and thought maybe it was just trying to dry itself out still so I let it sit yet another night. I tried turning it on this morning (Sunday) and it did the same thing with the fans. I've researched many different articles and based on what I've read, I've either goofed up my laptop so bad with turning it on that it won't work anymo...

So here's the situation. I have the original X1 with the spill proof keyboard. I spilled water on the right side, and so I tried to angle it to where the water would flow out the bottom. I turned the computer off as soon as I could and removed the ac power cord. My X1 is not powering on. Right now it is upside down draining the water, but it does still charge.Question is, what should I do next? If it is dead, is there a way Lenovo will fix it for a reasonable price?













Solved!

Update: It's been three days and it still doesn't want to turn on. I removed the SSD to place in my old Edge 14 for now. I've taken apart the X1 and it doesn't seem to have water damage, unless I'm missing something. Maybe the power button is shot?

Hello everyone, i have a laptop that sucked up some water through the bottom. Not sure how much got up in there, but now there is no power. No power with just battery or just AC. Push the power button and nothing happens. I removed the Ram Hard drive and battery and let sit for a few days and still nothing. Did the motherboard just fry or possibly the CPU? Its a HP Omnibook xe4600. Thank You.
 

A:Water Spill with Laptop

not even the bios came on. nothing. flatline. to me that says, fried mobo. that thing is dead mate. if i were you, i'd get a new mobo and see if the other parts are still working. and if you can't determine that, or do it easily, then ask a professional to test the processor and the graphics chip and other parts. if they still work, you can save some money and just get a new mobo hopefully. otherwise...you're kinda screwed.

by the way...if you can, try to avoid hp. they are seriously going down in terms of quality and warranty support. gateway, lenovo, acer, and a few other brands are now the way to go.

but that's a side note...yeah...get a new motherboard first. sorry about that...not exactly a very pleasant thing to have happen to you, let alone to have someone tell you what you feared most....i wish you the best.

Sorry if this is in the wrong section, I wasn't sure what section to put it in.
I've just recently spilled water on my laptop keyboard. It wasn't a lot and I instantly got paper towels to help clear it up after I quickly turned the power off.
I made sure to keep cleaning with the towel and pressing on the keys gently to put more water out for it to be absorbed.
It's turned on fine, and so far I've not noticed any keyboard issues.
Will my laptop be fine, or should I do something else just to make sure?
The water mostly spilled on part of the speaker, the power button, and a few of the keys. There's no water anymore and everything feels dry, and like I said it was a small amount of water.

Hello there, This is my first time posting. Basically, I spilled some water on my laptop keyboard 2 days ago, I wiped off the water and left it overnight. Then when I turned it on the keyboard is completely dead. The laptop itself turns on fine, the screen as well as the touchpad work fine, but the keyboard is not repsonsive at all. I am typing this question on the laptop now using a temporary external usb keyboard. Ive checked all the drivers and they do not indicate any problem. I think I may have to purchase a new one.  Model Number: HP 15-d051sa.Windows 10 64-bit. Kind regards,Farooq93

I spilled about half a cup of water on my laptop keyboard. Immediately unplugged, soaked up visible water with towel, propped laptop upside down to let the water drain out. At first, in my frantic state of mind, I thought I should leave the battery in to keep the fans running and blow evaporated moisture out. Read an article that said I should take out the battery, turned around, and saw that the screen had gone black. I took the battery out. I now have it propped upside-down with fans blowing on it from above and below.

I've read some articles, but they just tell me what to do right away. What I really want to know is, assuming I get it all dried out, what are the odds that the laptop will be okay? I mean, it's just water, not coffee or soda or anything.

UPDATE: Just checked the ingredients on another bottle of the same water. Purified water, calcium chloride, and sodium bicarbonate. Hopefully residual calcium chloride and sodium bicarbonate will not destroy my computer over time.

So I spilled about a half glass of water on my laptop. Its an Alienware 17X. I've been thinking of replacing it since its a bit old and not working so great anymore. However I still need it for a little while longer! It was late and I was just about to go to sleep, and I wasn't really thinking. I've never had this happen to a computer before, since I'm usually quite careful. Here's what I did which I now see is the worst possible thing you could do:

I dried the keyboard as much as I could, but left the laptop on. Then I went to sleep, and actually left the laptop on all night. The following day, I found that multiple keys on the key board weren't functioning, though the rest of the computer seemed to work fine. I shut down the computer but then restarted it. Some of the keys that hadn't worked now seemed to work again, but most the keyboard still wasn't functioning. Also whenever I clicked in a place to type, the j key would just type out an infinite amount without me pressing it. I shut the computer off again but I didn't do anything about it. Today, I tried to restart my laptop again but it went to the reboot options screen, and since the keyboard doesn't work I can't boot up my computer. I finally looked up what to do if you spill water on your keyboard, and I realize how stupid I've been.

It doesn't seem like there would be any water left in the computer by now, but I've shut it off, turned it upside ... Read more

Yesterday, at ~8PM I opened a bottle of mineral water, unfortunately for me it burst and spilled all over my laptop. As I had no idea what to do I just stood there for like 5 seconds, then I realized I should disconnect the plug. After that I tried to dry it using towel and paper towels. Because I had no idea what else to do I just decided to give myself a treat and just go to sleep early, so I left the laptop there as it is (in normal position)

The next morning (roughly 8 hours after the spill) I decided to try whether it is working or not, well, it's quite hot in my room so the water should be gone now, the water spilled on the ground did disappear as I was too lazy to swab it (lol)...

well, the laptop is working just fine so far, except the keyboard is typing weird stuff

Q - q`1a
A - qa
D - 'd
F - vf

etc, not all keys are doing this, most of them are working just fine...

what should I do now? I know I can use the external keyboard, but is there a way to fix this? I have Asus G750JM and somewhere I read that the newer laptops have some feature that prevents the water from going to the laptop HW from the keyboard, not sure if mine has something like that but as I said, it works just fine except for the keyboard

I also tried to dry it some more today using paper towels, turn it facing down on the paper towel to see whether there still was some water (nope, the water towels were dry), I also decided just to clean it from dust using canned air, well, my laptop i... Read more

My g580 ran out of battery while using it, and now it gets stuck on the lenovo logo. I tried a different hard drive which changed nothing, I've tested both hard drives on a different computer and they both work. However when I boot the laptop with no harddrive it will get past the logo go to a screen saying something about an unplugged cable then reset and get stuck on a blank screen.   If I plug in my windows recovery usb drive( and no harddrive) the the machine will boot normally and go to the windows installation screen. So any ideas on why a working harddrive would stop the system from booting? Also I've tried the whole taking out the battery unplugging it holding down the power key and then plugging it back in thing, did nothing.

We cannot guarantee Intel® SSD 540s Series but should work as long as the specifications are the same else you can scan it with crucial to match. Best to check return options when purchasing from third party resellers just in case.

I have a g580(2689) with win 10 and ubuntu14. Problem started a day ago, i am unable to turn on the wifi in windows. The option is not even highlighted. Diagnostics told me that wireless connections are turned of so i tried FN +F5 but still no change . Drivers are uptodate. Everything is working fine on linux. Any solution.
