Acer Ferrari shuts down
\015 Hi there, I have an acer ferrari 5005. My son spilt water on it so I pulled it. Without telling me it would shut down after approx 2 minutes. I pulled the laptop apart and cleaned it with Isopropyl and put a new fan in. The laptop still shuts down so I bought a new power adaptor, and the problem still exists. I have noticed that the power indicator is not on but the battery indicator is on showing a green light. Any ideas??\015
This sounds like a shorted power supply or even worse the motherboard, or processor. There might be parts that are still damp let it dry out longer you could try a hair dryer on a low setting before taking it to a repair shop.
