Technician's Assistant: What's the brand and model of your computer? And the Operating System (OS)?

One minute please

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your computer? What have you tried so far?

How do i tell

Technician's Assistant: The Computer Technician will be able to walk you through that. Anything else you want the Computer Expert to know before I connect you?

the entire computer its everywhere
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Ok
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
I can do it via tract or emaul
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Or do I need to wait to tomorrow

in that case if the oil has penetrated to the internal components then there is a high possibility that it will short the internal components

the immediate step you need to take is turn off computer and unplug the power source

next wipe off excess oil wherever visible and then take the unit in for service

where should I take it

since its a hardware issue, i did not accept the remote service request as this has nothing to do with the computer settings

let me know your post code and i can locate the nearest service center for you

it works for now but i don't know for how long it will keep my school work or even turn on

if possible backup all your important files on external storage like a usb flash drive or hard drive

Ask Your Own Computer Question

you can first of all backup your important files onto external storage like a usb flash drive or can attach the files to an email and send it to your own email address

once you have backed up, turn off computer and you may give a call at below mentioned number to schedule a service

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
