    I'll remember this, thanks for the warning......

    Oops  :(   


    According to computer repair people, it happens regularly.  I haven't done it yet but I have a laptop and so my beverages and food don't come anywhere near my computer!   

    i never have......( yet ) it's not a laptop, i hope

    it's happened to me twice now lucky for me i was able to revive it..

    good for you

    It the second time for me , this could get expensive if i'm no careful .perhaps  i should invest in a sump pump..

    With the old desktop computer, I would drop liquid on the keyboard, I unplug it, take it to the bathroom or kitchen sink, run warm water through it and shake it out then blow dry it.. Wait about an hour or so and plug it back in.. No problem..  Can't do that with my laptop though.. :)

    My wife has a laptop and i tell her don't spaz out like i've done twice now with my desktop pc..

    It happen to me  twice the first time got it repair then it happen again and that was it for that laptop.had to get a new one, rule #1 don't drink near the laptop, rule # 2 & 3 & 4  repeat rule # 1.

    If you get too # 5 you got a good laptop maybe waterprooof.

    No, I have never done that. I am very careful when I am on my computer. They get dusty though . We have a special handheld vacuum to get the dust out of the  keyboard and screens.

    Ann: Be careful with the vacuum .... it can cause static electricity. You might want to invest in canned air.
    Ann

    Flip, Thank you for the warning. I will try the canned air instead. I did not know it could cause static electricity.
