SO, I called Dell today to place an order for a replacement keyboard. After explaining my mishap and waiting on hold for a while, they put me on the phone with some guy who tells me I Have to send the computer in to get the motherboard cleaned out and prevent any further corrosion from occuring. He says although it might act fine after the spill, after a day or so it might do otherwise. I say, It's been a full day already and it's still fine. He says not cleaning it would allow the liquid to continue to corrode the motherboard.
All in all,
new keyboard= $30
sending it in to be cleaned = $199 and 2 weeks without my laptop
my motherboard possibly randomly dying one day from extended corrosion= $500
Has anyone experienced a similar situation? I don't know what to dooo.
I'm a college student and losing my laptop for 2 weeks would be very very very inconvenient.
I'm also poor.
Help TQC! :(
