Hi, I have a dell e1505 notebook and I spilled coke on it 2 weeks ago and after cleaning inside out the lights turn on for 3 seconds and then turn off. after a lot of research I ordered a motherboard, received it yesterday but nothing has changed. I also noted that the cdrom during the 3 seconds also turns on. what do you think is the problem?
The problem could be one of many things. I would recommend you contact Dell and see if they care repair it for you. They will have it looked over by technicians who will replace the parts necessary.
Laptops are quite difficult to diagnose.
