Save Your Laptop from Water Damage

Mar 16, 2008
One of the greatest inventions of all time after the personal home computer has got to be the laptop computer. So many people today own them and many find it very difficult to function during the day without them. So many other people use them than just in the business sector.

People with all kinds of lifestyles use a laptop to enhance their lives. School students and mamas that work at home keep them at hand. An active mom can move them from spot to spot when she needs to and students like to have access to them at school as well as many other places. You are subject to need them anywhere you might venture to. Wireless internet services are so great and the number of spots that they might be used is continually getting bigger. Even going into the wilderness is not always out of the question.

Because of all the flexible options that you enjoy with a laptop, there is a fear of misplacement, someone stealing it, or damage getting done to it. Being similar to cell phones, loss, theft, and damage through your own fault are not likely to be replaced under your warranty. Water accidents are a major thing that gets done to a laptop quite frequently. The chances of all kinds of liquids getting splashed in the laptops keypad and getting inside to the circuit board, seems to be less avoidable than with the tower of a desk top system.

If this should occur and a laptop gets contacted by water or some other wet substance, do not panic. It is entirely expected that you might because you will not only be scared of losing the laptop, but all the files it kept for you that is impossible to put a price on and can be impossible to recover. The first thing that you do is unplug immediately. Flip it upside down to get out as much liquid as possible. Remove the battery and dry it completely with a cloth.

The next thing you do is carefully disengage the screws are holding it together. With an absorbent, lint free cloth, very gently dab away the liquid. Then simply leave it alone for an entire 24 hours and possibly longer. Make very sure it is thoroughly dry before you attempt reassembling it and turning it on.

Just remember, this procedure is just if a laptop was exposed to water. If it was soda or any other sticky or acidic liquid, you should still disengage and remove the battery. Even though you may clean the circuitry with alcohol, you might possibly do more damage to a laptop that might be fixed more easily by a skilled computer specialist.
