So, yeah, spilled some juice over my macbook pro, joy..
I didn't know what to do when I spilled it so of course I just got a towel and tried to clean it away, unplugged the Notebook in about 3 minutes..
Since then it has been freezing or lagging every 5-10 sec, the keyboard lights are a mess, "H", "Y", "7 and /" and "B" are brighter than the other keys, the delete key, the eject key and the volume keys are a little hard to push.

Anybody got any answers for me?
Don't really have money for a new one and I kind off really need my computer :c
It happened late yesterday btw.

I really don't understand why we need to keep regurgitating this topic constantly. I think the point highlighted in red in the post bobtomay mentioned is pretty clear. Once the exposure has happened, the damage is done.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Like cwa’s signature says, liquids and computers don’t mix. You can’t say you weren’t asking for it.

Because as you know, everyone thinks their situation is special or different. No one likes to be told there's no hope...or search for that matter.

This is what I have to remind myself every time I see the same question for the 10,000th time...but sometimes it's difficult...especially when we have stickies that specifically address it.

But then again...I know that new members don't always read stickies...and may not even know they exist since they are new to the website.

I think the OP read the sticky, which is why they mentioned that it was closed in the thread title, but just doesn't fully grasp the gravity of the situation.

Liquid shorts circuits in ways that they shouldn't be shorted, resulting in damage to said circuits. So, once the short happens, it's done. In some cases, it might get better after it's dried. But more often than not, it's already toast. So, the moral of the story is, let it dry out and hope for the best. Otherwise, you can expect to have to repair or replace it.

You can't miracle it away. You have to replace the damaged parts. I think the sticky thread is very clear, but for whatever reason, each person seems to think that their situation is different. I'm not unsympathetic to these folks, but I just wish people would be more careful with their expensive electronics.

As a kid, I remember dropping a walkie-talkie into a puddle, destroying it. My dad said to me "you need to learn how to take better care of your stuff, I can't fix it". Apparently not everyone learns that life-lesson until they've done something similar to something way more expensive.

Ahh...that makes sense! I was sort of confused why the OP mentioned that "the other liquid spill thread was closed".

I thought maybe they meant that...they (the OP) started a "liquid spilled" thread...it was closed...and then they (the OP) started a 2nd thread.

I guess looking at it fairly & objectively (from the new member standpoint)...I guess it would be sort of confusing to:

- be a new member
- find the appropriate thread
- read the thread (the liquid spilled "sticky")
- and then not be able to reply to it (since it was closed).

Of course on the other had (logically)...what else really needs to be said. In most cases: Liquid + Computer = Dead Computer!

You're right on both counts.

I think maybe we should go through and purge all of the cruft in that sticky thread and leave it open for people to ask their questions. And then just periodically clean it out.
