I made the very stupid mistake of cooking with my laptop in the kitchen and getting some oil splattered on it.
I read that oil is not conductive and so the motherboard should be fine. I cleaned it off and shut down my laptop for a while.
Everything works just fine now, except there is a large bright spot in the lower right corner. I can see through it, but I'd like to fix it if I can.
If I can take off the screen myself, and clean behind it, would this go away? (It's clearly seeped behind the screen). Does it just need to be cleaned behind the screen with a microfiber cloth? Or is it already damaged?
If it's already damaged, I'm not going to bother with taking it apart. If it would be worth it, however, I will take it apart very carefully and clean behind the screen.
It's an HP Pavilion notebook.
What do people think? (Is there another way to do it)?
Thanks in advance.
