My laptop fell in the pool and now it won't turn on!!
Is it ruined for good?
Take out the battery (if you can) and let it dry completely before you try to turn it on.
BTW, how did the MBP end up in the pool? It wasn't texting, was it?
uhh.... yeah it probably is dead.
Get you a huge bag of rice and put it inside for like a week or two, don't mess with it and then take it out and try it. You may want to remove the battery first and probably get a new battery altogether.
But really, it's probably dead.
Unless it was in a waterproof case... yes
If the logic board or the CPU (or any other component) made a short circuit somewhere, then yes. If it refuses to turn on, that was the case.
However, it may well be because of the high humidity. Let it dry and retry in a few days. If nothing happens, dead.
Hey Bro! (high five) . You should totally take your macbook out on the floaty. Yeah like totally!
Wow... This is a first. I haven't heard of a complete submergence before in terms of water damage. I am curious about how that happened lol.
well if it wasn't on when it fell in the pool and you got it fullly dried before you boot it, then you can have some hope.
Why so close to the pool with your MBP? or any electrical device for that matter.
Pool + Laptop + Margaritas = Very expensive
yeah my imac fell in the pool also a week ago. i tried to use it while lying on my rubber mattress.
You folks must have heated pools. I live in Florida and no way I'd venture into a pool this time of year.
Even if it's dry, there's still going to be all kinds of residue left over from the pool water. And the fact that you attempted to turn it on without taking care of the residue first (or even letting the internals dry completely for that matter) means you're almost definitely SOL.
I guess that might be the OP's first and last post but I wonder how it fell in the pool?
what do you mean by first and last post? did he violate the forum rules?
Probably, Don't use a laptop close to a pool. Even if it isn't a Mac.
Salt water pool?
Was it plugged in?
I think he's saying because his mac is probably gone he won't be posting again.
Who goes to the pool with their MBP, or any laptop for that matter???
I actually LOL'd on this one.
pack it with rice or certain plain oatmeal and wait a while. it may save at least some parts
Plus, you'll have lots of mac-flavored rice. Mmmhh, nice...
Seriously, don't waste your rice: your mac is toast.
No one has asked yet...but mind telling us how this happened, so we can avoid it in the future?
