Laptop won't turn on after water spill.

I spilt a glass of water around my laptop yesterday and obviously some of it splashed. Picked it up asap and unplugged everything in it, dried the area and it was still working. Turned it off 10 minutes later and left it overnight. Just now, I've turned it on, it was working for 10 minutes and now has cut out without turning back on,

Any ideas?

I spilled water on table where laptop is, and it was at the bottom where the spill occurred, and it would not turn on - what do I do to rectify the problem?

=== Update (05/31/2019) ===

What about if I replace the adapter/charge cord - would that be a possibility that it would work then?


Hi, guys had the same issue recently but after everything I’ve done the only thing that I see is an orange blinking light when I try to power on the laptop is not even charging. Could it be beyond repair?

First problem, was you continued to use it after water was spilt on it. Any water spill should be treated seriously as the motherboard sits directly beneath the keyboard on most laptops, with a few exceptions having drainage ports that help to mitigate liquid damage. You could attempt to further dry it out by placing it in a dehydrator for a few hours on a lower temperature, but a lot of times if a liquid joins two or more circuits, there can be irreparable damage to the system. It’s not the answer you probably want to hear, but it’s a truthful answer.

Your first step to potentially remedy it is to get it in a warm and dry area and let it sit to complete dry out. You can reattempt to start the device up after that point. The worst thing for a board is if it is a substance with salt or sugar, i.e. the coffee pills on laptops I’ve encountered too many times to count and the residue of sugar and dairy creamer left behind.

Honestly, best of luck because it’s not always easy to return from water damage especially when you felt you did everything right to prevent damage to it.

turning it on could have been a mistake…a very dry environment, an immersive bath in a pan of rice, etc, for an extended time (pick a number and double it) might solve the problem if nothing has shorted.
