Will a Laptop Continue To Work If there is water damage?
I sent my laptop back to the manufacture to resolve issue's with the optical drive. This was after the technician logged in remotely; and completed several diagnostics to determine if it was an actual problem. I was then contacted by the technician that was assigned my case and informed that there was water damage. and informed that it would cost more than it is worth to repair. I informed them that they were only supposed to be fixing the optical drive, there was no water damage and if they were going to charge me to fix the optical drive, then just ship it back; mind you it is still under warranty. I could live without the DVD drive.
They sent my system back totally fried, it will not even power on. When I contacted the manufacture after receiving my system back, now inoperable they tell me it is nothing they can do.
My question is, if the computer had that much water damage, would it have continued to work? Basically I am being told that once they opened it up, the previous water damage (which there was none on my part) prevented it from working any further. Is it possible for a computer to have extensive water damage and continue to function?
