ACER 5536 ASPIRE LAPTOP LCD WONT START UP thnks to a coffee spill

\015 Hello! My daughter spilt half a hot cup of coffee onto my NEW (uurgh) Acer Aspire 5536 Laptop.I opened up to the inside of the computer, and cleaned it and dried it out. The power button loads, and I hear the hard drive and fan come on, but the screen wont budge! It happened a couple of weeks ago, and ever since the incident I have got not one flicker of colour or anything on the LCD! The coffee didnt actually go on the screen though, so I figure its damaged the Graphic card??? I'd really appreciate the help. Thanks in advance. [email protected] \015\012Niki\015

Hello niki_amber.
\015\012Based on your statement "...I opened up to the inside of the computer, and cleaned it and dried it out...", it sounds as if you substantially took proper action. However, that's assuming you allowed it to dry for a loooong time. Translation: Based on my experience, my advise is always at least a few days. Because other than ...
  • immediately de-energizing,\015\012
  • mitigating the flow of liquid into the internal electrical components,\015\012
  • and as best you can disassemble and mop/wipe/rinse/clean to greatest extent possible
\015\012...allowing it to attain bone-dry condition prior to re-energizing (applying electrical current) is THE MOST IMPORTANT step. Otherwise you instantaneously void all those preceding diligent efforts by simply shorting out every component that finds the slightest moisture in its path ... and unfortunately, there ain't no way-back machine for that, at least not currently.
  • "...so I figure its damaged the Graphic card..." ... That's a very good call, cause it would be mine as well. However, I would still suggest hooking up an external monitor. If you get picture from that, you can almost assuredly rule out the graphics card as the culprit.\015\012
  • If I were you, for the sake of thoroughness, I would start from scratch and give it one more complete going-over, to include mild rinsing, as well as a thorough check of every connection point.\015\012
  • If after that it's still ookey, it'll be time to bring it to a competent repair tech ... unless of course you're technically capable of circuit testing and/or methodically swapping out each and every component in order to deduce the problem
\015\012Here's a very good checklist you can refer to whilst you endeavor away.
\015\012With a little luck, and much more prayer, you may just dodge the bullet.
\015\012Thanks in advance for posting back ...
  • to let me (and others) know how things worked out. \015\012
  • if you have any further questions. \015\012
  • to provide clarification or feedback.
