View Full Version : [ubuntu] Laptop power problem.

December 6th, 2010, 06:54 PM
I have a Dell Inspiron 1525. Last week I accidentally spilled water on it. The laptop turned off instantly. I immediately took out the battery and dismantled the laptop and dried it for 4 days. Then I put everything back together and it mostly worked. Half of the keys of the laptop donesnt work. External keyboard works so I have ordered a replacement keyboard on ebay. The problem is the laptop doesn't start without a power cable. But once it is on I can unplug the power cable and it works on the battery for a couple of hours. It just wont turn on without the power plugged in. Any ideas? Oh and the DVD drive wont open either. I know I am lucky that the computer is working, but it would be great if everything works.
