Liquid spilling is one of the common, and the most damaging problems with all the portable devices, let alone Lenovo laptop. What makes the phenomenon more damaging is not the fear and not the surface damage, but the compactness of the device that has that one opening which lets the liquid through to its internal components.

Lenovo laptops are indeed compact, there you might have to perform the disassembly with more care and in the following niche order:
- Remove the keyboard first, disconnect it from the computer.
- Then comes the LCD screen, you must use the butter knife to smoothly pry it off from its panels.
- Once these surface peripherals are removed, you can move on to CMOS, then RAM and then motherboard.
- Once you have separated the components, you must dry them out.
- For drying the internal circuitry, the tried and true method is using a bag of rice. It would absorb all the moisture from the devices and (probably) make them functional.
- Reassemble The Laptop: After the devices are free of any moisture, reassemble the parts.
- Check If The System Works: best case scenario, the system would work, worst case scenario, you would need repairs or a new laptop.
