Laptops and Moister Dont Mix

By: Idnmedia
One of the grandest 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 throughout their day without them. Business people treasure them, but so does everyone else that owns one.

There is so many of us everywhere that use this item on a daily basis. School students and mamas that work from home appreciate the easy maneuverability of the laptop. A stressed to the max mom can move them from home to other places when she is on the go and students are able to have them at school as well as the house. You can find need for them if you are riding in a vehicle, anywhere you might go off to. Wireless internet connections have grown and the amount of spots that they might be used is continually increasing. Individuals can even take it on vacation.

Due to all the portable options that you can get that comes from a laptop, also comes all of the threat for losing it, someone stealing it, or it being damaged. Just like cell phones, theft, loss, or damage due your own actions sometimes will not be replaced under your warranty. Water mishaps are a serious thing that can happen to a laptop more often than some of the other incidents. Liquids being splashed into the laptops keyboard and soaking the circuit board can destroy it easily.

If this should occur and the laptop gets exposed to water or some other wet substance, do not do not freak out just yet. When only water has wet your laptop, there might be more hope than you thought. Even your files might be saved if you are very lucky. First flip it upside down to let out all the liquid you can. Get the battery out and dry it good with a cloth.

What you want to do next is remove any screws that keep the case together. With an absorbent, lint free cloth, gently dab at the moisture. Then just leave it be for a full 24 hours. Be positive it is thoroughly dry before you put it back together and test it. If it still will not come on or is not working properly, do not mess with it further.

Be advised, this procedure is just if your laptop was saturated by water. If it was cola or another sticky or acidic thing, you can still unplug it and take out the battery pack. Even though it is possible to clean the circuitry with alcohol, you may possibly do more damage to a laptop that could be repaired by a skilled computer specialist.
