    Hi I have a question..,I was drinking a glass of wine while watching a show on my laptop and the glass slipped and spilled on the keyboard...as soon as it hit the computer shut off and will not turn back on, no lights, no fan no anything...I know liquid can do a lot of damage so I was wondering if in your experience a laptop in the condition is repairable or would end up being super expensive to fix..thank you!

    Unfortunately, in order to find out exactly what was damaged and where requires proper testing equipment, the knowledge required to use it and perform the tests . . . the cost of which could far and away exceed the cost of a of new computer.

    I agree, and regarding this type of issue, most computer shops, being that they are in business to make money (of course) will charge you a lot to even diagnose it -- depends on the shop some will look at it or give an estimate for free. Good news is because your drink was part alcohol there will be natural dissipation. Bad news is that grapes are naturally sugar based. If you can find someone you trust that is good with laptops and PC hardware in general they 'might' be able to sweep the innards with an isopropyl solution over the top of the wine with a fine brush, then dry it with a blowdryer (no kidding I have done this) and on a few occasions it worked fine. If it immediately turned off though I would presume an entire large glass was spilled on it and as the above posts suggests you may be looking at a new laptop/device as a replacement.
