This is the story, a Dell XPS m1530 was ontop of an air condition. I was used to doing this to an older dell, this one had no over heating problems.
Anyway, I left it there over night and I guess it had gained moisture, causing it to get wet on the inside. The PSU and everything is located through the bottom of the laptop, thus, causing the problem. BUT WAIT!
It wouldn't turn on, power button, then the other few media buttons ( play, skip, volume etc ) wouldn't flash.
Screen wouldn't turn on.
I pressed D and power at the same time, which made the screen turn on.
Pressed FN and power, made the num blink and caps stay solid.
Reseated ram, didn't fix anything.
So I just left it on the floor and woke up the next day, it then turned on! It died as it needed to be charged, wouldn't turn back on. I don't have any heat sources, so I put it in the oven at 150 degrees. For about 10 minutes.
Maybe more, I don't remember. I was on the phone.
It turned on! I plugged it in and blah blah, great. Working.
Played some games, chatted. Everything seemed fine.
Decided to restart my computer, and then it wouldn't turn on anymore after it shut down...
I heated it, but only to the point where it was warm. I'm sure the water has evaporated by now, no? Maybe it's something else?
What could possibly be the problem? It seems if I leave it alone, or heat it, it will turn on. This is completely illogical, what could cause such an occurance?
