I'm fairly new to these forums. It seems like a good place for computer talk, and especially for some feedback on my situation! So, the other day, I accidently spilled some milk onto my notebook keyboard (Toshiba Satellite a100-va1), it didn't seem as if much went inside, but apparently it was enough . For the first 10-or-so seconds only sticky keys and the 's' key occuring six times on one push were the symptoms. But then shortly after my screen started flickering, then random lines of black going through it, then big squares of black covering a total of 3/4 of the screen, then it just turned pitch white. I immediately turned off the laptop and removed the battery. I came back to it around 5 hours later and put in the battery to test it. It turns on fine, all signs of the power working. But, the screen is completely black. It does not show the startup image of Toshiba or any loading of anything whatsoever. But it stays powered on fine? So basically I am left now with a laptop that powers on, but has nothing visible onscreen! So, sorry if this is a long post, I'd thought I'd tell everything that happened exactly for a more accurate response . Basically I'm looking for what could be wrong with it. I'm thinking the motherboard failed?
