Milk spill on laptop

Hi there, there was a milk spill on my Lenovo laptop, I was wondering if there was a way to fix it, the spill happened 2 years ago and I still can’t find any help on it, when plugged in the light on the Ethernet port of the laptop flashes and nothing else happens. All help would be appreciated

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi there, thanks very much for responding, the laptop is unable to power on or get to POST, I have a suspicion of damage to the power board, would that be a possibility?


It's definitely possible. It could be a number of individual components or even multiple components. If you're up for the project, see if you can find a donor machine on the interwebs and replace the boards one-at-a-time and see what you come up with :) (I'd start at power supply\power control board(s) and work up-stream from there).

Could make for a nice tear-down or how-to vid to add to your collection!

I'm afraid you haven't provided enough information for a good reply\suggestion. Based on the provided info, it doesn't sound like it is making it to the POST. If that's the case, then it’s probably borked.

As far as I know, if you can’t get into the BIOS then there isn’t much you can do aside from replace the motherboard.

If you can get into BIOS, then there is hope! See what hardware the BIOS is recognizing and what it is not. It could be a simple harddrive swap or something like that that. /fingers crossed!

I’m extremely sorry for the late response, the laptop doesn’t post, when the power button terminal is shorted the charger light flashes on and off until I let go of it.
