Oooooh that sucks so much! That happened to someone I know...the plasitc on his laptop literally started melting! Then again, he probably shouldn't have kept using it after spilling water all over it... If anything, you should be able to send it in for repairs. If you have a Dell, theyr'e suprisingly good at that kind of thing.

I am a moron and still spill drinks on my desktop tower all the time.
You'd think I'd either move the tower or stop putting drinks on my desk

I want a laptop.

And some coffee.

Just not together.

Hope it's fixable, Shannon.

I drink redbull. It gives me wings, plus I have a desktop replacement laptop at work.

it's still under warranty, and it's just the keyboard on the laptop... everything else is fine.

i'm actually on the laptop right now with a USB keyboard connected to it... i have wires up the ying yang

Oh noes! I hope it's fixable

Last year, my sister accidentally spilled juice on my laptop keyboard and nearly fried the motherboard

Luckily the damage wasn't terrible, but with all the problems I've been having with it lately, I don't think it'll last for very long

it won't start this morning...

might just be 'cause the battery was dead, but it was plugged in... so it should start right up. will wait till it's charged fully to try again, but the motherboard may be fried.



IT best get this sent out immediately... the warranty is up soon.

IT has it... wether or not they actually get it serviced quickly or not, that's a horse of a different color.

just let my hard drive be safe
