How to Prevent Hard Disk Crash beacuse of Spilling

Spilling Coffee on your laptop will not simply destroy your dawn, it can destroy your computer. Act rapidly if this happens, because it simply takes seconds for liquids to kill the Hard Disk of a laptop computer.

1. Shut down the laptop immediately.

2. Wipe up any liquid. Tilt the Laptop the side to drain any liquids.

3. Remove any removable parts from the laptop, including the power cord, printer and mouse cables, the floppy drive, CD drive, modem cards and battery. Remove only external parts.

4. Once the parts are removed, lightly lift the laptop and move it to the position and upside downward to drain any liquid. Tilt the laptop in a kind of directions to affirm that there are no pools of liquid lurking, but be cautious not to shake or use roughly and repeat this action with the floppy drive and other removable parts.

5. Allow the computer and its removable parts to dry for 24 hours before you reassemble it and turn it back on.

6. If the computer does not run properly or does not move on, take it to a computer fix professional, although the harm might be irreparable. Spills are one of the leading causes of laptop deaths.
