the old cup of tea again : (
I have an IBM thinkpad, and managed to slosh a load of peppermint tea over it... yippee.
Turned it off straightaway, and took out all the bits that i could get out fairly easily.
The next day, with bated breath turned it back on, everything working fine, no keyboard keys broken, however, the sound wont play.
Checked on device manager, and get a code 10 error;
"cant turn this device on," it says in a rather sombre way.
All recommendations on computer and internet say to update drivers, but when i try this it says "cannot find a better configuration than you have already" this time in a rather condescending way!
Possible solutions that i've come up with:
1. the sound card is covered in tea and has gone to the great motherboard in the sky, or
2. when i took all the bits out i messed up a connection to the sound card...
Either way, I need to find a way of examining sound card but have absolutely no idea what they look like, or where to look...
If anyone has any suggestions at all (getting kinda desperate)...
