1. Go to Google Chrome. 2. Click on the menu button near the corner (3 lines) 3. Click 'Settings'. 4. Scroll down to the bottom and click 'Show advanced settings' then scroll to the bottom again.. 5. Click the button saying 'Powerwash'. Warning: This will remove all users from your chromebook. I'm not sure what else it does because I have never done this. However, I do know that lots of your things are saved on your user account. When I got a new chromebook because the old one got water damage, I set up my user account and there was all my browser history and bookmarks! However, I do remember needing to reinstall browser extensions (which shouldn't be a problem), and I'm not sure if it saves your files, so best to backup your files on somewhere like Google Drive just to be safe. I'm also not sure if this will solve your freezing problem, so maybe try going to chromebook help. https://support.google.com/chromebook/an...-635802978720753488-1374578451&source=genius-rts I haven't used this so I'm not sure if...
Try charging it, maybe it ran out of battery life. Or maybe the power button broke from water damage. That happened to my older chromebook. If water damage is the case, try closing the chromebook than opening it again. Good luck!

The article was for repairing water damage and that area was for getting sticky residue off the computer if someone spilled sugary drinks, but it should help with cleaning stickyness. Just please do me a favor and make sure the keys are removable and can be put back easily on before you rip apart your keyboard. Good luck with that!
I have had a SIMILAR problem with my windows 8.1 desktop a while ago. I repeat, SIMILAR. Not exactly the same, but it might help. It was a while ago, so I may not remember some of it, sorry if it's not helpful. I was playing a game and the game crashed, and I remember my computer getting stuck on a black screen. What I remember doing was turning the computer off than on again and giving it some time. Again, I do not quite remember what happened, but I'm hoping this might help.
