    I had my chromebook randomly shut off while I was using it, the model CB3-131.It wouldn't turn on until I hard reset it about an hour later, then when it turned on they keyboard would not work, except for the power button. Any idea on how to fix this?

    Alright, edit. The mouse is starting to glitch out as well, I think I'm going to try powerwashing. Edit: It did not work

    Turning it on while it's wet can kill it.

    It's basically a factory reset, I'm using an on-screen keyboard currently. I'm just going to get a replacement.

    power washing ≠ factory reset

    Power washing is the use of heated, high-pressure water spray to remove loose paint, mold, grime, dust, mud, chewing gum and dirt from surfaces and objects such as buildings, vehicles and concrete surfaces.
