I recently spilled some water on my Inspiron N5050 laptop. It was working for a short while as I tried to get rid of the water, then it went white. I waited a few days and tried to boot. 4 Beeps and power light on. Messed around with the RAM and found out the only non-serious problem it could have was a bad CMOS battery. Replaced it and now it tries to boot on a cycle. I can hear it trying just barely, but no beeps. After awhile, the light goes off for a split second, then it retries, until I unplug the power supply. Any ideas?
Sounds destroyed to me, time for a new laptop.. sorry man.
Well thanks. The optimist in me want to hear other possible solutions but the realist in my let my hopes down a long time ago. Luckily I bought it refurb for only 350, but then again it was only 6 months ago.
