I'm in a desperate situation.
So.. here's what happened.
I was drinking water while on my laptop.. when I accidently
spilled some water on my keyboard.
As Soon as that happened, my computer automatically shut down with an error message that read something like the system has been halted..I can't really remember what it said. Then I panicked and just shut down my laptop manually by pressing on the ON/OFF button.
Then I cleaned up all the water and tried drying my laptop with
hair dryer. Couple of hours passed, and I tried booting my laptop..
it didn't work. It didn't boot, and instead had some error message and it started running some tests on its own..
and the test for the hardware read 'fail' but memory, screen, and etc. all read 'passed.'
I didn't know what those meant.. so I just shut down the computer again.. and waited until the next day to try booting it.
So now.. my laptop boots up perfectly fine but the internet would not work! I thought everything was okay since the water was all dried now.. and my computer boots up and everything works fine....
but the INTERNET WONT WORK =( I use wireless internet connection by the way.
So I clicked on support and did 'ipconfig' and it states that
my media state is 'disconnected.'
Now, I tried everything to make this thing to connect... such as
using that winfix program, re-installing the protocals, switching from using intel PROset to windows to manage Wi-Fi....
but NOTHING WORKS.
Now I'm thinking that it's due to my hardware damage.
Is there any other way that I can do to fix this problem?
Will re-installing XP help?
Or is this a permanent hardware damage (due to water spill) and do I just need to get a new laptop?
HELP! and THANK YOU IN ADVANCE
