Cola in the laptop :-(

Hi all

Yesterday evening I wanted to move some papers on my desk and accidentally knocked over a glass of cola I had on the desk. The glass, of course, was so near my personal laptop, that the cola went straight over it and into the keyboard Sad smile

I wiped it clean as fast as I could, but the connection to all USB peripherals was gone – suddenly the external USB harddrive couldn’t be reached, so my running virtual PC just crashed, and the external mouse and keyboard were also gone.

I chose to close down the laptop immediately and let it dry up over the night. It seems ok now – it runs and the peripherals are back… hoping that was it…. Would hate my laptop to crash.

So today; No beverages near the laptop!
