    I hope so Toni as I rely on it quite a lot for ordering shopping ect and sometimes the notebook will let me order but then wont let me pay. and trying to get oh to let me use his for about half order is almost impossible. :roll: i wouldn't mind but not long ago he was having loads of problems with his laptop and ended up buying a cheap one which he set up but then didn't need to use it as his other one got sorted it has sat in the cupboard for about six months . when i said to him about me borrowing it for awhile I got well I suppose so u if my mine breaks down i'll have to have it back. still that Ohs for you. :roll:

    It is so easily done, isn't it? I did this once and now ensure that any liquids are behind my laptop so if they do go for a burton hopefully they'll miss it - so far so good. I hope yours dries out but the stickiness might be another issue . . . . my creaky fingers are crossed that it isn't. Please let us know the outcome. DD

    Well took it out of airing cupboard this morning It turns on but I cannot log in cos one of the letters in my password is one of those not working so think laptop will be on its way to laptop heaven need to see if I am still under extended warranty if I may get keyboard sorted by them.

    How annoying for you. Laptops have many advantages over PCs but tolerance of beverage mishaps isn't one of them! Things like pepsi are doubly undesirable because not only are they sticky but they are also corrosive, so even if the keys don't stick it's likely there would be problems further down the line.
    What is they say - don't drink and drive, you'll only spill the drink!

    Laptop update still will turn on but still still have certain keys not working but have found out this morning that my extended warranty brought when purchasing laptop still covers me until November so now have courier coming on Thursday to collect it for repair so that is a good result, wil probably have to wait up to 10 days for its return. :):D
