I accidentally spilled wine on my Asus S200E Laptop and now it won't turn on.  I am tempted to buy a used Motherboard and try to install that and see if that makes it work.  Is there likely to be any additional damage besides the Motherboard?  What are my options?  Thanks

How much damage depends on the amount of liquid you spilt & how far it got inside the machine - you need to open up the machine & have a look - any sticky components bits are probably useless. I would expect at the very least that the keyboard is probably u/s.

My guess is it is not worth repairing with other parts.  Is there any components that could be sold, but how would I know if they still work.

See if the computer boots with the keyboard cable removed from the MB. But as rqt posted for a wine spill you are looking at at least a keyboard.

 

You can save the hard drive and optical drive if you have one depending on if the wine entered the optical drive area. You may be able to salvage the CPU and fan/heat sink after a good cleaning.

Too bad it's mostly not good news.  For me, skilled at these things, two days of meticulous cleaning and it MIGHT come back to life.  If you're up to that task I can give a detailed procedure but it is mostly general and not unit specific, you need to get it apart first and access the extent of the damage.

I spilled a coke across my laptop's keyboard a month or two ago.  I immediately pulled the power cord and turned the machine off then held it upside down for a few minutes.  Wiped off liquid and placed the machine in to a zip loc bag full of white rice.  I was not expecting a positive outcome so imagine my suprise when I checked it out after about 2 weeks in the rice bag and it fired right up!  I did not take it apart or clean the inside at all.  WIped her off and it still works great except for a couple keys stick on the keyboard.  I got lucky as heck and I hope you had a similar outcome.  Best of luck.  

 

PS- Spilling wine on computer is alcohol abuse.  Perhaps you would consider attending a 12 step meeting... :lmao:

The rice bag is a good approach but I'm sure you won't be upset when it dies in another week.  COKE, it couldn't be worse.  The insides are not dry, sticky, gummy brown bubbles, catching every last dust particle.  Sticky keys is only the beginning.

Well ya know mjd you

Well it has made it another week without getting stuckon itself.  I am thinking the coke didnt get down past the keyboard or you would certainly have been correct about it being headed towards a sticky, dusty death.  I must attribute the laptops survival on my extremely fast reflexes and nearly Superhuman cat like hand eye co-ordination.  Wait a second, cats don't have hands.  Oh well, it was a really good save on my part...
