So I spilled a fair amount of water right into the cracks of my keyboard about 2 months ago. I flipped it over and some water came out and since then my computer has been working just as good as ever. Is there something I should look out for? It almost seems like my keyboard is a bit funky at times and my computer um..... creaks more. Its an aluminum body btw.

Any friendly advise?

The water is not yet able to take physical form, but its spirit has lost none of its potency. You're in trouble.

Stick it over a flame overnight so the water evaporates an the hardware melts...

take the battery out, put it in a big bowl of dried rice (as in the sort you cook with) and put it in the oven at a low heat (like 50ºC/gas mark 1/8) for a few hours/overnight. The rice will absorb the moisture, and the heat will help it evaporate without being hot enough to damage the hardware (a macbook's processor typically runs at around 60ºC, and is safe up to 100ºC, but other parts might well melt below that).

Do not exceed 40'C!! Doing so will damage your CRT...

If you spilled 2 months ago, the water is gone by now anyway. Define "keyboard is funky and computer creaks".

If it was only a little bit and it still works, stop drinking around your computer.

Does your keyboard sound like this guy?

If it still works after 2 months I think you should be ok. Your description of the problem doesn't really tell us anything.


I spilled juice on my laptop keyboard. I had to pull off a bunch of the keys and clean it. Some of the keys used to stick a little, but that was like a year ago and they all seem fine now.

Invent a time machine, go back in time and kill yourself before you spill the water on the keyboard.

With his fingers?




If it works fine, then it's good and unharmed...........well that's what I think and I'm mostly wrong.....
But i think it'll work fine, like I dropped my mp3 into a cup of orange juice and it still worked fine, however when I put it in the washing machine it did not..

a jackhammer straight against the keyboard should fix it right up!

no CRT on a laptop brah, also


# Operating temperature: 10° to 35° C
(50° to 95° F)
# Storage temperature: -24° to 45° C
(-13° to 113° F)


so you're probably good to 50ºC. (I know that's the MBP spec, but they're the only Al models they sell nowadays.

I have a macbook, and I have a widget which tells me several internal temperatures - currently:

-processor 65ºC
-airport (wifi) card 56ºC
-enclosure base 27ºC
-heatsink A and B 55ºC
-memory bank 44ºC
-northbridge 48ºC

50ºC in the oven should be fine.

if I'm encoding videos or something (using both cores to 90-100%) it tends to run at around 85-90ºC.

If the computer works your lucky, the mother board is right under the keyboard.
Don't really worry about it if it's still working.

Clean it with water.
