I have this lovely machine which I use every day and naturally have not backed up everything on. Well, the thought had gone through my mind more than once and I wondered what would happen if I ever spilt anything on it.
This week I found out.
I tripped walking back to my computer, carrying my tea. The tea went flying - all over my computer. Despite my complete and utter despair I managed to keep my wits about me (not sure how). I tipped it upside down, grabbed a cloth, wiped it off and then pulled the battery out, wiping out the water before putting the hair dryer on it (warm not hot).
A thousand things went through my mind. I turned the desktop computer on and went out on the net to see what to do - thank fully I had done everything right - and most importantly - DID NOT TURN IT BACK ON! Instinctively you want to do that to see if it is working.
The advice online - leave it off for a few days to completely dry out.
So I did.
We've just turned it back on - 3-4 days later. I was nervous.
Everything seems to be in order - sure it could've gone on insurance but that is a big hassle. What a relief! Although time will tell if it is completely unscathed.
