I accidently poured coke on my laptop in Building, Troubleshooting & Modding Posted May 19, 2010 · Edited May 19, 2010 by willm As per title. This was so bad that it was actually dripping *through* the laptop, from the keyboard through a vent on the bottom. After this I turned it off, took as many panels out as I could and cleaned everything. The power would not come on for a while< turning on briefly and then off. It turns on fine now, although I still have some lingering problems: 1. The keyboard is odd, some keys just stop working and caps lock turns on and off....at the moment it is on and I cant turn it off 2. When ac is unplugged and battery is present, The charging light is on< and the power on light is on quite faint 3. The Fan! The fan is on full bore, although I don't think my laptop is overheating at all 4. My touchpad. It is completely unresponsive. although the ribbon doesn't seem to have any coke on it at all....I'm not sure what to check here. For problem 1, I have washed the keyboard pretty thoroughly, is the problem coming from somewhere else? No idea about 2...i guess the button connections are dirty, but i could not find a way to get to them. My laptop does not have the removable strip just under the screen and above the keyboard most laptops do. No idea about 3....I made sure everything was clear, but I don't know what else could be causing this. No idea about 4 :( Any suggestions, please? Perhaps it will sort itself out as the coke residue fades away?
