My daughter has a less than 1 year old Sony Vaio CR laptop. Some water was spilt on the laptop when it was off and now it won't turn on. Anything I can do other than GS service or manufacturer repair? How do I know if it is a motherboard damage? Cause if it is, I might as well just purchase a new one for her, right?
do happen and hopefully you purchased a Best Buy® Performance Service Plan (PSP) or Geek
Squad® Black Tie Protection Plan with accidental coverage?These plans won’t cover submersion but the
Accidental plans do cover small spills; manufacturer’s warranties do not cover
spills. Here is a tip for everyone with a keyboard spill.Immediately remove the plug and slide off the
battery to turn off the power.Turn it over,
keyboard side down, and open wide like an upside down “V." Place on a towel to dry for
about 24 to 48 hours. Do NOT use a hair dryer as it will melt sensitive connections. Spill damage can
be instantaneous; there are no guarantees this will fix or prevent
anything.Ultimately you will need to
bring to a professional such as your local Geek Squad®.Cases like this tend to end in keyboard replacement
or a whole new computer.Good luck!
