My Laptop Got a Bath


Written on Saturday, June 28, 2008 by Ennah, the comsci student

I always leave my laptop in my study table. Lately, I'm not putting it in its bag anymore because I always use it anyway. And a lot of people in our house also use the laptop, so I felt secured leaving it behind because I thought that many people will take care of it while I'm away at school.

However, when I got home this evening, my sister gave me the bad news. My 3 year old niece poured water in my laptop. The keyboard and mouse were not functioning well and my LCD got water inside of it. I was horrified seeing the situation of my laptop. The good thing about it is that it's still booting. I cried after seeing it. I cannot believe what have happened.

I don't want to get angry at my niece because she is still young and she still doesn't know what she's doing (even if she is in a day care already). I did not get angry but I feel so depressed because I still got a lot of programs to do and it's very hard for me to surf the net and blog

Lucky me, my boyfriend lend me his laptop - an IBM Lenovo T61. It looks like my laptop but a newer version. I hope I get to finish my program by Sunday so that I can give it back to him. I'm actually using his laptop at this very moment and I also do hope the keyboard will work well tomorrow when it's already totally dried up.

Lesson: Always be cautious. It's ok to be safe than sorry.

    Ooh, ouch.

    The only nearly "catastrophic" thing that happened to my PC was when my cousin's 3-year old son slammed back the CD tray when I caught him fiddling with it. I thought the drive wouldn't function again. To make matters worse, the disc 1 of my Men of Valor --- a Vietnam War first-person shooter --- was on the tray when it happened. 0_0

    I hope your laptop gets fixed Enn.

    So sad about your laptop..
    you should start on your laptop if there is still water inside..
    you should wait it dried.. maybe you can use hair dryer or..or anything..

    if not this will cause problem to motherboard :)

    next time.. always cover your laptop with anything or put inside bag..
