Water Damage Repair and Question
I spilled water on my macbook, which is currently upside down being dried. After the spill, it automatically shut down and now I'm planning on fixing it myself since I can't afford having it repaired. I'm planning on diassembling it and cleaning every trace of corrosion with 99% alcohol, but here are my questions (and please bear in mind that I have almost 0 knowledge of technology):
· I've read that it's important to replace the thermal paste, but I'm a little confused as to where and for what I need to replace it; for which piece exactly? And will any brand do?
· A technician told me the circuit was fried and that the main damage is the corrosion; does that mean that fried = corrosion (same problem), or is a fried circuit another distinct problem from corrosion?
· Are the screws inside the laptop (on the motherboard) the same as the ones on the lower case? I've ordered a 5 pnts screw online (the small one that I have right now couldn't unscrew the case), but I want to make sure I won't be needing any other tools.
· Is there a possibility that my laptop still won't be functionning after those steps?
Thank you! Also, any additional piece of advice is welcomed
Is this a good question?
