#1 UNPLUG IT IF PLUGGED IN! #2 TAKE OUT BATTERY! These 2 things you must do right away, taking away power sources helps to keep from potentially shorting out any hardware. #3 Get it to a service center immediately to have it accessed! You must do this within the first few hours and make sure to let the service center know it was spilled in, and if there is an expedite option USE IT! The faster a tech can get it apart, the less chance the liquid has of corroding parts. You must make sure you have all the information, i.e. what was spilled on it, where, how much, and if it could have been splashed on the display panel, you also need to let them know wether you turned it on or not. Even turning it on for a second after a spill to see if it works is asking for a short to occur. You have to make sure you tell them what was spilled on it. If it's something with sugar, alcohol won't always completely clean it and it can cause corrusion later on. Simple things may be replaced to make sure complete funtionality can be contained. I.e. Dc-in board, keyboard, and any other inexpensive part that could have potentially been damaged. Remember, keep drinks away from your laptop and make sure you follow these steps if accidents happen! Keep your hard drive backed up and have a nice day!
