One of our laptops had an, erm, accident. Water was spilled on the keyboard. It refused to power up after that. We tried to dry it out for several days; still it would not work.
My friend Bappu pointed me to a repair shop in Elephant Road called Imex. It is a down-to-earth place on the second floor near "Bata Intersection." It is run by one Asif who has HP/Compaq certification for supporting PC and laptop repairs. I knew I was in good hands when I entered because Asif glanced at my (closed) laptop and guessed the right model number (1700T.)
Well, they fixed it! Luckily the motherboard was ok, but Asif had said they could even replace that if need be. Charge was Tk 1000 (for labor and some minor cleaning up and PC board re-soldering.)
