Windows 7: Toshiba Satellite Liquid Damage Solution?

Toshiba Satellite Liquid Damage Solution?


My mum spilt some water on here new(ish) laptop and after a short while it stopped working all together. charging light showed but no response from power button.

After checking the basics (battery, ac adapter, ram, hdd) i found it worked fine sometimes. so after eliminating each part i found the fault to be the ram plastic cover.

Before you think i'm nuts hear me out, i tried each part separately and the only times it would work were when i left the plastic cover off.

I found the inside of the of the ram cover to have a metallic foil coating and on the adjoining base plastic there are two lots of two pins. i guess whatever they join up to was shorting.

Now i have cut the foil off in the areas that would connect these pins and my question is, Where do these pins go?

It's obviously a safety measure of some sort but the laptop has been on and working fine for around 18hrs over 3 days and i cant find a fault with the operation of the computer (other than having to replace the keyboard due to the liquid damage).

Anyone know of a reason i should worry about the failing to boot when the cover was complete and look into it a bit more thoroughly or can i rest easy it was a simple fix?

If it is a simple fix, im glad i shared as it may help someone else.


oh its a toshiba satellite pro c655d-s5300
