Sorry no HDD question but a laptop PCB question.
yesterday my 6 year old son spilled some lemonade on my laptop.
After cleaning everything it still worked. But a few hours later it stopped working.
I opened it up and spotted some lemonade on my mainboard.
After cleaning the whol board with alcohol and putting it back together everything was ok except the audio to my speakers.
Windows says that there are no speakers connected or headphones. I tried everything rolling back drivers, installing new ones and uninstalling.
Even made a Ubuntu Usb stick, which also does't recognize audio equipment.
Bluetooth audio works with a bluetooth heradphone.
The other thing the HDMI output finds my TV but it not seding any video signal.
After i looked back at my pictures i saw that the one chip that had lemonade on it was located next to my HDMI port, so i'm guessing that's the part which is failing. It is a RT9025 25ZSP LDO. Could this part cause my problems and could it cause the rest functioning properly???
I attached a picture of the lemonade spill and IC.
Hope someone can help me test the IC and telling me some more info.
