When it hits the fan.............

...............it goes EVERYWHERE :shock:

During our week away last week I used to upload the days photographic images onto my laptop and do some processing in Elements. Up till Thursday evening I had about 160 RAW images with about 110 processed.
Don't know how I managed it but I knocked my wine glass over - it was full - and deposited the contents all over the laptop's keyboard. :shock:

I very quickly unplugged the power and turned the laptop up side down on a towel, took the battery out and also unscrewed the back and removed the hard drive.
It is, however, a very DEAD laptop.

Hopefully the hard drive has survived as there was no liquid on or near the connections. I have ordered this gizmo to hopefully transfer the files from the hard drive to my PC.

The only redeeming factor about the accident is that it was not expensive wine :roll:

Hope that thing works in making the transfer. One thing about desk tops that beats laptops is that if your keyboard gets critically abused you can just toss it and get another one and don't ruin the actual computer parts. Good luck.

I tore my nephew's laptop apart when it died, indications were it was the processor. So I bought
one and tore the laptop apart, an all day project. (see photo). That wasn't the problem..... :evil:
So I bought one of these on Amazon for $9, stuck the hard drive in it and he just plugged it into his
new laptop to get all his kids photos. I like the way it completely enclosed the drive.

Holly crap, Vern, I didn't know you were that much of a techno repair guy. Anything I took apart that much would never work again for sure. :shock:

Duncan,

In this case< "Vinum enim in exitium" not "In vino veritas".

Optima fortuna.

Everything I found online said it was most likely the processor, next likely was the motherboard.
Well it wasn't the processor, so maybe one day this winter I will get a new motherboard and hard drive
and tear it apart again. Have gone onto laptops before, but this was the first complete disassembly.
Way more complicated than I thought, no spare room anywhere......... :shock:
