Macbook Air with Coffee spill repair
Yesterdays macbook air with coffee spilled repair was quite lucky for the owner. We took computer apart, did a little board clean up. Then we let it dry for a while. Then checked the voltage on internal components, they checked out ok. Then put it back together and it worked! Good news for the customer!
However that is not always the case! And most importantly, i am getting tired of explaining to people, the fact that the first thing you want to do if you happen to spill coffee or water on your computer by accident, is to disconnect it from power source! which means unplug adapter and disconnect the battery.
Apple of course doesnt help you much with this. Especiall when they started using pentalobe shape screws on the bottom of the lid. they are the type of screws that NO ONE has a tool for them in their house, unless they have bought it on purpose. So i understand you completely if you tell me you are not able to open the lid on a macbook fast enough, because you dont have a proper screw driver to do it! not many people do!
That’s why if you spill coffee or water over your macbook air, you must rush to a nearest computer shop in the area and ask them to open it ASAP and disconnect the battery!
I can’t tell you how many macbook airs could be saved if people just did that. But they don’t!
What most people do, is they plug it in hoping macbook air with coffee spill will still work and if it works they get excited, but then 10 minutes later it stops working and they get very sad. Because they don’t understand two things:
- water (or coffee or most fluids) is a conduit! that means electricity can travel through it. which means if you spill it over electronic components, it will bridge connections for electricity to flow in places where it is not supposed to flow. I dont know if you ever tried to touch battery terminals together on car battery, to find out that it produces lots of sparks! same thing happens inside computers .except you dont see the sparks, because components are tiny and they are hidden under the lid(which you can’t open quickly enough). those components spark and burn when coffee creates conductivity in the wrong place and then your macbook air stops working!
- it is the power source (battery or power adapter) that causes damage to computers logic board, not the coffee or water! you can spill or you can dunk the computer into the bucket of water if you want to, then you can pull it out, dry it out, connect battery to it and it will most likely be working. But if you connect power adapter while water is present then some components will burn inevitably, because of what i mentioned in point number 1 above! It is electricity that burns things not the fluid!
And i can’t even tell you how many times people call and tell me same story. I just had another conversation today. they spilled water over macbook. and they tried to plug it in to see if it still works. It did work for 3 minutes. but then it died. Now they have to pay to fix it.
But if they just left it alone. turned it off, brought it to a computer shop like ours. We would clean it up, dry it out and the macbook air would be in perfect working condition!
Moral of the story! don’t be like most people! if you have coffee spill on macbook air, turn it off immediately and bring it back to fastest mac pc repair in newbury park, ca (fastest mac repair in thousand oaks area)! and we will take care of it for you and most likely it will work, just like the one with coffee spill in the picture!
pc Computer running slow? its your own fault!
is your pc computer running slow? that is not so uncommon nowadays. and most of the time there is one reason for it. i have been seeing same thing over and over again on many computers. many computer techs dont even know what that is and their solution to the problem is to re-install windows 10. however that is (almost never) necessary!
the reason computers run slow today(with all those super processors and maximum memory that you got!) is because of ADWARE. adware is what is referred to PUP’s or potentially unwanted software! those are the programs that are not malicious. that means they don’t do any harm to your computer or your software, however they are like trash laying around your house. you can step over it and let it lay there, but at the end of the day your living room is full of trash and it lays there and makes things unpleasant.
adware also maybe tracks your online behavior, but in most cases it just pops up and offers you to buy something or it pretends it scans your computer for errors and usually finds errors and encourages you to buy full version or program so it can fix those imaginary errors!
so how does it get on your computer everyone is asking me and how to protect yourself from it? so your “pc computer running slow” thing doesnt happen.
the answer is simple. YOU – yes you! a user. have to stop putting it on your computer. like i said above. adware is not a virus. it doesnt install itself onto your computer. it is usually the people who install it themselves and then wonder why things are slow! so yes you are your biggest enemy!
so what to do?! well first if you already have adware you have to get rid of it! you can use malwarebytes program its free. but it doesnt always clean everything out. some things have to be removed manually too! so best thing is to call fastest mac repair and pc repair newbury park and we will do it for you! call 805-585-5535
in terms of prevention. most adware comes when you install new programs. here is an image of when i was installing file zilla. during installation there were two windows where i had to uncheck the box asking me if i want to install additional software.
but what do most people do? they just click click click next and they dont read anything! then you have a computer full of who knows what! 🙂
