If you have left me a comment, I am working on getting it fixed.  For some reason, comments are not showing up.  Very frustrating!!!

Please be patient with me as I am trying everything I know to fix it. :oops:

Laptops and water DO NOT MIX update

The day after I spilled water onto my 2nd laptop, I took it to a computer repair place.  They were going to let it dry out for another day and take a look at it.

Well, they turned it on and it works! YAYYY!  Hope fully it won’t quit down the road from corrosion somewhere!  It was open in the first place because it had a broken hinge and they are going to be fixing that for me also.  It won’t be sitting on my desk with the lid open.  I can close it and tuck it up high on a shelf and keep it out of the way until I need it.

Laptops and water DO NOT MIX

Not a great weekend here.  My older laptop drank a whole glass of water through it’s keyboard..  UGH! It wasn’t on, and hopefully the quick tactics like wiping it off right away, turning it upside down to let the excess water run out, running a hair dryer across the keyboard until my arm was numb and leaving it in front of a fan on high for 12 hours may help!.  Whew!

I took it to a computer place today and have submitted an insurance claim. One website said that it may run fine for a while but then corrode and die. One consulation was that there are hundreds of “Help I spilled __ on my computer” posts, so I am in good company.  Cross your fingers for me!!!

That’s what I get for being Miss organization and was arranging my office.  It could have been a lot worse, my new laptop was sitting on the other side of my older laptop, so I am truly grateful I am able to write this post and my new computer is happily churning away.
