Acer P1VE6 (Aspire One 722) charges but won't boot
Some time ago my son spilled water on top of the closed Acer Aspire one 722-0473. The water rolled off the top and entered through the touchpad/speaker area. When I plug it in, the orange charging light comes on. When I press the power button, the blue power light comes on. It even stays on after I unplug the laptop (battery is charging). When I took everything apart, I did not see any visible corrosion, but it still won't boot.
Do I need a new motherboard?
P.S. The only change I made the the original system was upgrading the hard drive. I purchased official ACER recovery discs.
Looking at the touchpad's logic board, it's got some discoloration under what looks like tape (which is holding cables on). Can I peel that off to clean under it?
I swapped the motherboard out, and now it is working beautifully!
