So I was sitting on the couch last night trying to modify a theme I want to use and guess what I did? I’ll give you three guesses…
Sorry all your guesses are wrong (unless you actually guess right, obviously)! So, I spilled Kool-Aid (yes, Kool-Aid) all over my laptop. What a waist of perfectly good cherry Kool-Aid. I spilled the whole freaking glass. It went down into my keyboard, into the speaker that is under the screen on the left side of my laptop and out through the fan at the bottom of my laptop meaning it got inside.
At first, I was so shocked and surprised at first that I actually did it. Believe it or not I have never spilled any liquid more then 1 or 2 drops on my computer. It took me about 2-3 minutes to even realize that I got the computer as I also poured half of it in my lap.
When I lifted up the computer I realized there was Kool-Aid dripping from the inside of my laptop. All of a sudden I panicked. All I could think of it is is plugged into the wall as my battery does not hold a charge longer then 20-30 minutes (another reason I am looking to get a new computer). Then all of a sudden the thought went through my head can I get electrocuted? I have no idea if there is enough power running through the computer, probably not. But I thought about it anyway.
Then my next concern was “Did I fry my laptop?”. I shut it down, unplugged it and turned it on the side I spilled the liquid on and let as much run out as possible (not even thinking I am still sitting on the couch and it is pouring out onto the couch and my lap, apparently I am not very bright..). Then I posted on Facebook asking my friends what to do. Haha, I am such an idiot. I didn’t have a clue.
I left it overnight and just turned it on this morning and it works as if it never happened. I love the person who invented spill proof keyboards. All though, the speaker is not really spill proof.
