Death by Ribena..Has it had it?
My girlfriend is a primary school teacher and has just spilt a glass of ribena over her laptop. We immediatly removed battery and power, dried it up the best we could and left it to dry for 24 hours.
I took the HDD out copied all documents across, so at least she has all her work.
We had out fingers crossed when we tried to boot it .... but no luck.
However. When you plug in the charger, the charger light comes on to indicate it is charging. And the orange standby light in is and when you press the power button it changes to green for about 2 seconds but then goes back to orange.
She is obviously very scared that she will get in trouble and I just wondered if you guys may have any ideas of what is wrong, as with past experience with water damage the system is usually dead as a Dodo.
I have read some reports of the newer boards having a safetey device that after dismantling and putting back together it works again?!
Any ideas guys?
The laptop is a school issue Ergo Engage 271
Help would be very much appreciated!!!!
