What do to if you spill a drink on your laptop

Spilling a beverage on your laptop can be a major issue. However, depending on what you do and how quickly you react, you may be able to save a significant amount of money by minimizing the damage a spill can cause to your laptop.

What to do in case of an accident:

Power down your laptop. If your laptop is powered on when the spill occurs, turn it off as soon as possible. Typically, holding down the power button for 10 seconds is the quickest way to turn off a laptop.

Disconnect the battery. After shutting down your laptop, remove the battery pack. This will prevent your laptop from being accidentally reactivated and eliminate all power pathways to the motherboard (example hibernation or standby mode)

Allow it to dry while open and turned upside down. Utilize the force of gravity to prevent liquid from drying on your components.

Get it fixed and cleaned immediately. Depending on the liquid that was spilled on your laptop, it may be corrosive, such as cola, and still be causing damage. The best defense is to have your laptop repaired as soon as possible. The sooner you get your laptop into the hands of a professional, the more likely it is that the damage will be minimized.

What to avoid:

Do not restart your computer. Many individuals will make at least one attempt to determine whether or not their laptop still functions after the spill. This is the worst possible action to take. I cannot emphasize enough the importance of keeping your laptop powered off and unplugged until it is repaired.

Evidently, your response to a spill can minimize the damage it causes to your laptop. I have witnessed spill-related laptop repairs ranging from simple cleaning and diagnostics to replacing motherboards, and it is easy to determine whether the owner handled the spill correctly or not.
