Having problems with your Acer TravelMate 270XV Notebook ?

Spilled water onto laptop keyboard

\015 I spilled water over my keyboard last night. first the keyboard stopped functioning in that area, and then the entire keyboard didnt work. after that i tried to restart the computer but got to the ctrl-alt-del screen which i couldnt get through since the keyboard didnt work. when i restarted the computer again, the screen said something abt stickykeys. after a few minutes, the screen just stays black on restarting. \015\012\015\012i tried to dismantle the computer but couldnt open the entire thing up. i'm wondering if it's still worth paying for the repair or if this means it's totally dead and i shd just get a new computer.\015\012\015\012thanks!\015

I swear this works.... put your computer in a 2 gallon ziplock bag (the biggest they make) and put dry rice in the bag. The rice pulls all of the moisture out of your computer. I dried mine out for five days and it still didn't work. Then I tried the rice and it booted up and worked great after a day and a half. It was amazing!
Your main circuit board maybe damaged. this would cost you plenty.
