- Toshiba Satellite A-55 Fried due to water?

because no one else can tell me. Ok here it is:
I spilled a soda pop on my keyboard traveling 2 weeks ago, and the
keyboard started automatically going crazy by itself. I shut it down
and went back to my house and let it dry a couple of days before I
even started it back up (haha already had similar problems with my
cellphones). But when I started it back up the Toshiba screen came
on but didn't do anything else. I turned it back off and waited
until the next day and it didn't even start at all then. So I don't
know what to do. I am in a bind. I went out and bought a Dell
Inspiron 6400, but it doesn't have the PCMCIA Card slot for my
AirCard. So, now I have to tether everywhere, but I want to get my
other laptop back working so I can network with the AirCard. Can
anyone make any sense of my gibberish? Ha! I hope so. Thanks for
your time and consideration in reading this and hopefully someone can
Re: Toshiba Satellite A-55 Fried due to water?
You may have fried the motherboard, or perhaps just the keyboard. Soda
is a bad thing to spill, even water often destroys the laptop but soda
is worse. But a keyboard problem can keep the machine from booting.
Remove the keyboard, connect an external keyboard and see if the machine
will then boot.
