Most of the time if we are lucky it's a connection or contact failure. The good news is usually your files survive 99.99% of the time. But here's the drill. To recover it usually takes a technician to dis-assemble the machine, clean and re-assemble it. If nothing else dies, then it lives on for some time. No one should warrant the machine as moisture has compromised the contacts,
1...spilled coffee on keyboard
2...let the thing dry out
3...wouldn't start or even light power light
4...took apart and cleaned off coffee from circuit board with isopropal alch and tooth brush and let dry
6...after 1/2 hour died again
7...next day...works for 20 minutes and dies
what should i do...is there a log that will tell me the why it is failing?
might it self heal??
