Surprised Alienware doesn't have a spill safe drain like Lenovo has had for a couple of years. Would be a good shot trying to soak the MB.

Another + 1 for soaking it!

I have actually put a motherboard in the dishwasher, let it dry in the sun for a couple of days and it worked fine.

you might all laugh at this...but have you tried hot water? it might just be enough with the heat to shift the sticky residue. Very hot water bath, then alcohol bath, then tub with rice for 3 days in a warm cupboard. Thats my suggestion. smile.gif

You've nowt to loose as far as I can see.

if normal alcohol bath doesn't shift it I second this motion biggrin.gif

edit: I'd probably run water over it rather than sit it in a bath so it can take the sugar away

If you soak it and it doesnt work find out how much you can get for it as parts and then working.
If it 1200 working and 700 not working I wouldnt bother with a new board but if its 500 or lower I would look around and get one and make a extra 200.

Now that's an interesting idea! It stands to reason that the hot water would be effective on the sticky stuff.

Will this actually work?

Running hot water is a great idea as well. Actually, you could even throw it in the dishwasher for a soapless cycle.

I have done this before, but with cell components, I am afraid of them being knocked off.

Running hot water, and a hot cycle in the dishwasher with no soap sound like viable options to me.

great recommendations latelesley!

I think the plan is coming together!

What should I do after the water? Alcohol?
