A lady called me up from Warradale saying her had suffered water damage as a result of a tall glass of water falling onto the keyboard and soaking the entire . The buzzed and fizzed for a while and then went off to the big sleep where all laptops go after they have a little swim. I had to break the news to her that the motherboard was almost certainly dead as a result of the water damage but the good news was that the hard disk was very likely to be OK. I removed the hard disk, dried it off and tested it in an eternal enclosure and was able to recover all of her data to another external hard disk she supplied. She decided not to go ahead with repairing the as it was already around 5 years old but was very happy that all of her personal data including photos, documents and her work from the old hard disk was able to be recovered. 

best regards,
