Hi,
i have had an issue about a month ago. I spilled fluid under and on my laptop. I had to use it firstly about 2 hours, immediately after the accident, it worked.
Then, I dried it in front of a fan heater, after (it's a pity, maybe too late) I removed battery, RAM and SSD. About one week.
Afterwards I used Isopropyl alcohol (much, spray) to clean it from fluids etc.
The I started it again: firtsly the keyboard made mistakes, after a restart the display also (flickering), now backspace isn't working. Thats the only thing I noticed.
I secured my data from the SSD on another laptop via a external case and it worked so far.
My question is: Could the SSD of the damaged laptop it was attached to be damaged in any way I could not recognize (if the mainboard of my "damaged" laptop has a shortcircuit etc.)?
Thx.

well, yes, the SSD could be damaged in the process, but if it's working then I wouldn't worry about it too much unless there are signs that liquid made its way to the SSD. Make sure you backup your data regularly.
