Solved Spilt coffee on new laptop - Monitor affected

Specs: Windows 7

About 3 months ago I spilled coffee on my new laptop. The computer works fine but the screen has a very faint display on it. Laptop works fine if connected to another monitor. I was going to replace the screen but I am concerned that the problem may be something else if the screen is showing a faint image.

If it's still under warranty, take it back.

Thank you but the warranty doesn't cover spillage. I checked.

✔ Best Answer

What you are supposed to do when you spill liquid on a laptop is unplug the AC adapter and remove the battery immediately, and take it apart and remove all liquid found. That gives you the best chance of yielding you a laptop that will still work fine.
If you don't want to take it apart yourself, you take it to a laptop repair place and have them do the job - they clean up laptops that liquid has been spilled on frequently.

Your display assembly is probably damaged and there's probably nothing you can do about the problem other than replacing it.
