Macbook vs Water
Has anyone ever had a Macbook recover from this? Knocked half a glass over this morning and it's made its way into the vents. Won't switch on or charge now. Only six months old...gutted. Any advice would be appreciated.

Did the same a few days ago.

Advice is to leave it and don't try and switch on for 36 hours.

Dry with silica packets or rice sealed in a bag with the laptop.

Also set up a fan under a crate with a towell on top. Lay the laptop in an upside down v or keyboard flat down.

Mine still isn't on...

I've never done it myself, but if its water (as opposed to anything with sugar in it), you have a chance. Let it dry out fully as suggested above before trying to turn it on again. It'll probably depend on any damage done when you first spilled the water.

If it was switched on when the accident happened then you're probably f#cked. Claim on your insurance.

It will come back to life but needs to dry completely so may take days, mine did and I spilled a bottle of beer over it. You can get tools to open it up on eBay and give it a wile insides well - donít forget think logically, itís just a machine and can be fixed even if apple say it canít be.

Renzo is correct these can be fixed even if Apple wonít look at it.

Did you switch it off straight away? As long as there was no current going through the motherboard when the water came into contact with it you will be fine as just give it a few days to dry out.

If it has touched the motherboard & blown any of the components then you can get a motherboard easily enough to replace it also depending on what component has been damaged in the board some repair shops can replace them.

I have recovered them with Cider & Coca Cola spilt on them i repair them but Iím in Essex otherwise I would have said pop in with it.
