Oops

Water + Macbook = ><

Water spilled on my bed and it seeped under my Macbook causing it to crash. But after unplugging everything and trying to get it to work I gave up. Now it is working but is kind of faulty. Don't know how long it will last.

Some say to let it dry for days.

Sigh

  1. Oh my gosh this is literally my worst nightmare. Have had my macbook longer than any other computer I've ever owned and I absolutely adore it.

    I once dropped my camera in the grass and left it there over night. It rained for hours and I assumed it was ruined. Tech savvy person said no matter what, don't turn it on and had me place it in one of those dehumidifier bags (not sure the exact name of it). After a few days, it was completely dried out and still works to this day. This might be something to try with the comp. I'm sure at some electronics market up that way there has to be these de-humidity bags. Just fight the urge to turn it on.

    Good luck!

  2. Yes, you should let it dry for a few days before turning it on again.

  4. Pull the battery out, disconnect it competely, and stick it in a bag of dry rice, leave it there for a day or two, the rice will wick out the moisture. The worst thing you can do right now is continue to use it.

  5. Joy,

    Ouch!

    There is a Mac store in Hongdae, just about a block from the front gate of Hongik University. Email me if you want/need really particular details. Heck, if it's time to rebuy, that new 13 inch macbook looks sweet and cheap.

    I once spilled a glass of win on my ibook, but managed to flip it over before anything got under the keyboard.

    Dry the computer for a day with a fan running over it. And pray!
