|One of advantages of
laptops-mobility. With these computers can work anywhere - lying on the
couch, sitting at the kitchen or at a table in the cafe ... However,
this increases the probability of hitting water on him. Spilt tea,
coffee or juice, a finding under a rain - these and many other things
situations can lead to ingress of moisture inside the laptop. This, in
turn, can cause serious damage and the computer failure.
How is the damaged laptop if any contact with water
Water, and especially tea, coffee, juice and other liquids,
is an electricity conductor. And so, getting on a chip, they can cause
multiple-circuit related to burnout and failure of various elements of
circuit boards. These are the most obvious damages done by the water.
Besides this it is necessary to consider one more moment. Getting on
the chip, which is energised, a liquid causes the electrolysis process,
that is, in fact, the destructions of contact platforms. And therefore,
if the moisture also has not caused short circuit, it can become the
reason extensive damages of various circuit boards.
Most vulnerable to damage by the water are open board (motherboard-
chips integrated on it, that is a video card, etc.) and the keyboard.
The accessories having own case (a hard disk, drive DVD-ROM), fail much
less often. However and they can suffer at laptop immersing in water.
Laptop water damage repair
Restoration of working capacity of the laptop at its damage
by the water includes the whole complex of various actions. In the
first place dismantling the computer and washing its. This necessary
action, as many liquids (tea, coffee, juice etc.), drying up, leave a
deposit which can appear the reason of short circuit of elements of a
microcircuit. After that all boards is carefully dried up.
Next recovered laptop keyboard. If it is folding, then it'll
cut exactly the same operation. Otherwise, need to be replaced by a new
The next step - checking of laptop parts and restore them if
necessary. In some cases there can be sufficient a prosoldering of
suspicious sites of a microcircuit and replacement of its damaged
elements. In other cases full replacement of the failed microcircuit
can be demanded.
On what success of repair depends
Success of repair of the laptop at hit in it liquids depends on several
factors. The first of them - actions of the user. At hit of a liquid
the owner of the computer should disconnect at once it from a network
and necessarily remove the battery. Otherwise the battery even when the
laptop will supply to the motherboard voltage required for power
management scheme. And it can cause electrolysis and destruction pads
chips. However, even prompt to remove the battery can not guarantee no
damage, since the motherboard is another source of tension - the
Also it is important, that the user did not include the
laptop after a while, believing, that the liquid has already dried up.
Even if this is true, the deposit which has remained on microcircuits
can lead to multiple circuits between its elements.
Another very strongly influencing success of repair of the laptop the
factor is the service centre in which the owner addresses. The matter
is that repair can appear difficult enough. And therefore it is
necessary, that it was carried out by the skilled professional
specialising on restoration of laptops. Also, for good performance
should be good equipment and the availability of opportunities to find
a replacement for the failed motherboard. Therefore in the service
centre there should be own warehouse of new accessories and extensive
communications with suppliers of the computer equipment, capable to
result any, even the most exotic microcircuit. It is undesirable
contact those companies that are in the repair of laptops using
second-hand motherboard, shot with malfunctioning computers, because of
their potential unreliability.
