A few months ago my parents house burned down (they are fine, even the dog). Dad brought his HP laptop to me to see if I could backup his data and it really looked like hell. It was not in the part of the house that was totaled by the fire but a back room so it is just smoke damage and debris. I was worried at first the fire department hosed it down and there would be water damage. But after some good cleaning and getting the corners and crevices with a tooth brush and q-tips, it powered up and everything seems to be working fine. The display looks great. There is just that smell. The smell of the burned down house. It isn't difficult to crack the case on these to get into the internals but I'm wondering if there are methods or cleaning agents that will eliminate that nasty smoke smell from electronics. Thanks in advance.
