Having problems with your Dell Vostro 1700 Notebook ?

Dropped tea on my Vostro 1700, dried it with a hair drier, and left in the airing cupboard for 24 hours. When pressing the power button, it doesn't switch on, instead it goes into Dell Media direct mode, and can't access the computer. Can anyone help.


Answers :

Don't see much hope there... the liquid probably left residue all over the electronics and may have shorted out some of the systems vitals.

You could try to disassemble the laptop and carefully clean it but... I'd take it to a service center and hope that my hdd was unharmed and my data is still intact.

Sorry and best of luck
