Re: Lenovo ThinkPad W520 water spill

It is all about where the water hits the keyboard, the rate of the water, and if the machine is on a surface that allows the water to drain out.

Re: Lenovo ThinkPad W520 water spill

Next time turn it off, unplug it, and pull the battery then let it dry. My T510 has had a full cup of water get knocked on the keyboard and I removed all power sources and let it dry for about 8 hours, it was fine. One other thing I did was pull the keyboard and shake the water out then dried out anywhere I saw water drops on the machine. This included both drive bays.
