Do you think my laptop can be saved?

HP 4440p

I inherited the HP from a relative and it quickly became my 'go to' pc. After using it in my bedroom I left the HP standing vertically against a nightstand (Lid closed with hinges at the top). The pc was shut down but it was still plugged in with power on to the power unit.

During the night i assume I must have knocked a glass containing a sugary drink over. When I woke up and discovered the accident I checked and the HP seems dead. No sign of power.

I've tried opening the HP up to clean the motherboard and this led me to this site. Given the level of knowledge here I thought I'd ask for advice before going further.

Note I have removed the HD and ram. I'm sure I can access my data but, if possible I'd like to save the computer from my idiocy.

@jr48 I am not convinced that it needs a replacement just yet. You do want to at least disassemble your laptop to take a look at what is going on. Download the service manual from here Page 98 of that manual will tell you how to remove the motherboard. After that remove the CPU and clean the complete board with 90%+ isopropyl alcohol and a soft brush.Check for any missing, burned or otherwise damaged component. If you give us any identifier on your motherboard, I am sure we might even find a schematic for that. Check your AC adapter and your power on button etc. as well. If you find an area that shows corrosion/debris residue post some images of your board with your question. Use this guide 在已经存在的问题里加入图片 for that so that we can see what you see. worst case is that you may need a replacement motherboard (part number 594028-001) which is available for around $70USD. cheaper than a new laptop and keeps yours out of the landfill.

Test the hard drive outside the laptop in an external enclosure . It is also a good idea to check the battery for leaks and as soda can cause the battery to leak . if it is leaking please be careful how you handle it and dispose of it

@oldturkey03 Nothing great about the north as far north as I was . Lots of rock and and marshland tundra . Sun all day is kinda cool though . Its is great to be home though

@jimfixer I spend some time up north (may be not as far as you were) many, many moons ago. The desolate landscape interrupted by herds of Caribou was pretty amazing.

The only wildlife I saw were the occasional bird . I really do have to say though that seeing the sun set and then start to rise in a matter of a few minutes is so cool kinda neat .They did have cages at the doors of all the out buildings so you could look for polar bears before you go to the next building or weren't surprised by one as you open the door . Never saw any though

If you dumped a drink over your laptop and got onto the motherboard sorry to say you shorted it and time for a new laptop.
