Spilled liquid on my computer and the rest of my series of DUMB actions about it. Help please!!!
I lose focus when something bad happens....yes that's my excuse.
So I spilled on my Sony Vaio laptop's keyboard (including touch pad) some liquid (a mix of oil, soya and vegetable juice....do not ask me how it happened, I am embarrassed enough already >.<). It was not a lot but it was a .... fair amount. Computer didn't shut down....practically nothing happened. I cleaned the superfluous liquid carefully but I was scared something might have gone to the electric system. No I did not use the fan. I rushed to the store.......yes.....holding my comp vertically. Store guy told me they couldn't help me so I am going to pay a visit to another store tomorrow.
Point is, computer worked normally, but I am scared there might be underlying damage. I noticed something (or maybe I am just paranoid now, couldn't be both) that when I connected it with electricity (battery was running out) the side got a little too hotter than the usual (only 15 minutes had passed whereas before it has been connected for hours and I didn't notice anything.)
Now it is shut down. I open often the fan. It is going to be shut down for at least the next two days. But I would like you techies to assess how damaged it could already be. Would a cleaning be any good? Yes I know I behaved in the dumbest way possible....so I beg you to skip to the objective part where you tell me that I need to start spare for another laptop. >.<
