    Hi there I spilt some Juice on the port side of my macbook, I opened her up since I had extra parts but have come to a problem. From what I could tell it looked like it was just my Network card that had gotten fried. I swapped out the part and things have been running smooth until up to two weeks ago. It will continually disconnect from any wireless connection and cause whatever is running i.e. iTunes to lock up and glitch. This happens out of sync therefore I can't tell when it's going to happen next...

    When I was younger I had some keyboard accidents beverages.

    For future reference, I will say this for any owner of any computer be it PC or Mac because I did this when I got older. Put plastic wrap around your keyboard. This will help against juice, water, beef fat, dust, crumbs, etc.

    You can try and get your computer fixed to make your connection work better but it will probably cost you.

    it really does not. I had a party last year and someone spilled near my computer and a little bit went around the keyboard. It was sticky for at least 6 months :mad:

    My mum spilt a thick smoothie on our iMac's keyboard, and I soaked it in the sink, then hung it by the fire, and then it was fine. Though this is not the case for a laptop...:(

    Wouldn't that cause a MB to over heat?

    I can hear the fan running, and it's only when I have the app WoW running.

    just too little information here. you need to systematically test parts and try to pinpoint what's malfunctioning

    from what you posted it sounds like it could be video card or network card. what i would do is use your macbook for a while in a non-intensive video setting and offline. try to reproduce the problems

    if no problems, try playing some games offline and check if it's video

    also do checks for ethernet vs wireless connections and see if there are any differences

    etc. etc.

    use the process of elimination and do slow, controlled increments and changes and look for odd behavior. download some widgets that display system performance and look for changes in fanspeed, heat, network load, processing load, etc

    debugging can be a quite frustrating and time consuming process
