Spilt drink on laptop

  coolteentom 18:42 28 Aug 2007


A friend of mine spilt a drink on her laptop the other night. It is now not turning on, and there are no longer any lights indicating any power to the system. We have taken as much as possible of it apart to dry, but still no joy.

Just wondering if anyone has any ideas what we can do with it, apart from sending it to a Toshiba repair centre which would cost roughly £250! :(
