Default Wine spill.

A friend of mine has spilt a full glass of wine over the keyboard of her samsung NP350V5C laptop, it made a bit of a flash! and now it fails to boot up.
I have stripped it down as far as I can and cleaned and "blow dried the MB and other components" it still refuses to show any signs of life.
Is it a waste of time now and its gone forever???

It could well be but it could be worth taking it in to a repair shop to confirm.

I had PC World change a motherboard in a Toshiba laptop for less than I expected.

The board cost 60 and PC World's standard charges were 50 but they have since gone up to 60.

A local repair shop may be able to do it cheaper, but it would need to be determined what exactly had gone down as to whether a repair was viable.

As an after thought, can you see if the machine will boot with the keyboard disconnected ?

It may be just that which is pulling things down, but a laptops components are very sensitive.

You wouldn't have gotten anything anyway when you removed the RAM - you would need to leave that in.
