Computer: Dell inspiron e5105 laptop
Situation: Spilled soda on my laptop, and like idiot I just cleaned it up with paper towel and continued gaming. My computer suddenly shut off and was out of operation (nothing happening when hit power) for about a week.
Diagnosis: I got it started and into testing using a second monitor. I was given error code 2000-0322 (LCD INVERTER not found) and error code 3900:0626 (TEMPATURE SENSOR not found). I am afraid I overheated my system. Though I am writing this on it (risky but only option.)
Surgery: I have installed two programs to try and solve fan problem. Notebook Hardware Control-Which displays my comp temps (which I do not understand if sensor is not found). The other program l8kfanGUI, displays and supposedly manually runs my fans. I used my chill pad and cranked my air conditioning to run and download these.
Computer Temps: HD: 46c and CPU: 56C (Normal temps?). When I tell l8kfanGUI to manually run fans, it acts as if fan 1 is working, yet I hear nothing running, and fan 2 (can't change speed of fan 2-I am guessing that is CPU fan).
Laptop Monitor: screen acts dead even when on, I have to continually turn the laptop on/off for it to go to testing which then recognizes and uses my second monitor. However I can sometimes extend my second monitor to it and it turns on with messed up colors. I would like it to use the laptop screen even though it is messed up so that I can just change to my second monitor once logged in (To avoid damage from turning on/off via power button).
Please help! If anyone can give me any information or possibly tell me an affordable way to save my laptop, I would really appreciate it. Very desperate here. :'(
