It all started with a swollen battery compounded by coffee in the keyboard. Once she was down it was time to fix er up.
took everything apart to dry out. the swollen battery was causing issues any way and a couple more gigs of ram never hurt anyone right? Easy easy.
never have any liquid within 5 metres of a laptop, and put as much ram in as you can ram in. If you have a spill flip it upside down asap.
