Actually, if everything is turned off and you remove anything that has a charge, you could clean your motherboard and other various parts with soap and water. Granted you can't soak that shit (you must be some sort of disgusting fuck for NEEDING to wash it, and not spray with compressed air).
#43 actually that might help. I accidentally dropped the nail polish remover on my macbook air (and not just a few drops) then i turned it off and it wouldn't turn on (i pretty much gave up on it at that point because my sister dropped a couple of drops of tea on her macbook and it was ruined) then i held it under the sink and let the water run through it and then i covered the whole macbook with rice for a couple of weeks and now it works just fine except for the keyboard and i bought the wireless keyboard in exchange and i'm downloading a couple of albums on my macbook as i write this comment!
Surely you can just replace the keyboard rather than the entire computer? How could that possibly cause so much damage to the whole thing?
@45 But a desktop is still a computer, if OP meant a laptop they would have said laptop; but they didn't, they didnt say either, they just said computer, so we'll never really know.. On a side note, I do actually agree that if it were a desktop, they would just have to get a new keyboard not replace the whole thing.
51- the thing is, if it was a desktop, it's 100% impossible for acetone to ruin the whole thing when it is spilled on only the keyboard. If the whole computer was ruined as OP claimed, the only conclusion is that it is a laptop. At least with a laptop the acetone could get through to the internal components. However, this is only under the assumption that OP isn't dumb enough to think a ruined desktop keyboard = ruined computer and failed to realize the keyboard is replaceable.
A few drops of acetone would at most do some cosmetic damage to the keyboard. It might not be pretty anymore, but its definitely not ruined.
Sounds more like a pebkac error to me. if you honestly think that little bit of acetone ruined the WHOLE computer, just by spilling it on the keyboard. then maybe you shouldn't be using it at all.. unless it is in fact a laptop, well then you're S.O.L sorry OP.
If so many people are pointing out that it could be a laptop it would seem that most people call a desktop a computer and a laptop a laptop. I've never ran into someone who didn't differentiate, but I typically am only around a techie crowd where the differences are important.
