Pictures are going to have to wait

Postby Valentine Strange » Thu Jul 05, 2018 6:07 pm

My computer some how got wet in the car on the drive back home. I’m not sure how exactly all I can think of is that I had the air conditioning on since it was burning up in the car and condensation developed. But the thing is my computer was the only thing wet. Nothing was wet by it or on it either so really confused how it got wet since nothing would have been able to spill on it.

It’s drying out right now. I Googled ways to fix it. It’s now sitting keyboard down on a towl that is laid out on a wire basket and has a fan blowing on it. They said to leave it for 2 to 3 days and switch out the towel when it’s wet. Hoping that it works after. Really hoping. It’s a custom built computer I got from a family friend in Ohio and I don’t trust anyone else to fix it except this guy. So if it’s not okay after it dries out I’m not sure waht I’m going to do.

I’m having to use my phone right now.

What kind of computer is it? You can take the cover off a desktop and that will help it dry out. Yep, water and electronics don't mix! :scream:

Laptop computer so not a desktop. He mainly makes custom Macs. So the outside is a 2015 MacBook Pro, but then the inside is all new parts and it’s got added memory, and enhanced graphics for designing(art programs and stuff) and most gaming. It’s also quite fast so it can keep up with high frame rates. I can’t really take it into Apple or another repair shop here because he really is the only one who knows all that has been added to it. I also don’t want someone to go poking around in it and accidentally (or purposely) messing it up. So really have my fingers crossed. Tomorrow is the moment of truth. If it is still having issues then I might have to make a trip to Ohio.

Yay!

With the heat here (105 today, 107 yesterday), it would have dried up super fast!

Looking forward to seeing your pix! :)
