spilled water on laptop

If you spilled water on laptop there are some steps to remove water from inside and prevent any damage. And this step is available only in the case of water spillage.

Alcoholic beverages and drinks that contain sugar or alcoholic beverages are dangerous and demand more careful cleaning methods. The first 4 steps of this guide will help to deal with such situations. These fluids leave a large amount of debris and therefore it’s better to contact a qualified service before you restart the device.

First and most important step, unplug the laptop after the spillage. You are safe then.

The second step is to shut down the laptop and remove the battery. This can avoid any unpleasant situation.

Here is the third step. Hold the screen at an angle of about 90 degrees, place the laptop upside down on a flat surface. This prevents water from getting into the device and so helps to protect extremely important components from spilled water on laptop, such as the motherboard.

Step four. Clean the excess water using a cloth or paper towels. The cloth has to absorb water. Avoid wiping the device. Using fan may introduce more dust.

In case of water spillage, after this step leave the laptop to dry at least 24 hours. Some strange recommendations like putting the laptop in a compartment filled with grains of rice or silica gel, to get rid of moisture is not mandatory.

Try to reboot the Laptop ( if it’s possible without the battery) after 24 or 48 hours.  All the best and hope it works!
