Spilled water on Dell Inspiron 600m

\015 I spilled water on a Dell Inspiron 600m; took it apart and dryed it out with a hair dryer on cool. It turns on and Windows starts up, but the screen is almost completely black. In the right light I can make out my background, and icons, but it is EXTEMELY faint. What to do?\015

Answers :

You're welcome; the inverter should be just below the power button board which will have to be removed. Good luck! And please take a moment to rate this solution fixya as well. Thanks!
When you experience this problem it's usually one of these four hardware components.

inverter
video card
backlight
video cable

The only thing you can do is replace each item until you find the one that is causing the dimness.

I'd recommend getting it repaired through a local repair shop. Stay away from the Geek Squad.

Or you can go the d.i.y. route and buy the inverter from ebay for about $10-15. Problem is you'll have to install it, it's not hard but you'll have to put aside about 20-30 minutes to do it.

Hopefully this info helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Best of luck!

Jumping Cursor This problem just started yesterday. I was typing a paper for a class (I'm in college). By accident, I spilled a very small amount of liquid on the keyboard (near the enter key and so forth). I quickly flipped my computer upside down, dried it and turned it off, checked the battery, then turned it back on. Everything was fine (the spill was minor). The problem comes in when I type in Word (sometimes e-mails, etc.) The text cursor will randomly jump to diff (just did it now) as I'm
