Shut it down, unplug the battery. The water is shorting out some of the circuits and leaving it on may cause more damage. Put it in a dry environment for a couple of days, you can also try a hair dryer (be careful not to get it too hot) to speed the drying process but the water is inside so it will be hard dry. A small room with a dehumidifier going would be great. With time it will evaporate and if you are lucky none of the components will be damaged.

Some water spilled on my hp laptop


If you didn't tip it on a side and wait a week I'd say there was still water in it. So yes you shorted something.

Little water got spilled tried keys later they worked now hey dnt


It will continue to get worse and do a number of things. Moisture is really bad on dc pcb's. After it dries it will start to corrode. The best thing is do a full break down and remove and signs of corrosion. You may need to order a new keyboard. The long beep could indicate problems with either your ram or hard drive.

Got spilled by water


Uh, oh, sounds bad, probably didn't get all the water. Also, you really have to open things up and let dry for several days(I leave things dry for a week, before attempting to power up). Open it again, do it quickly, I've never used a hair drier before, hum, I'd just leave it opened up(as long as it was just water that is). You need to get it opened up as completely as you can. Just try not to get impatient with it.

IBM T30 won't boot with LCD, but will boot OK with external eonitor


It means computer developed oxide on some contact, and this is causing a short that forces unit to shut down, laptop must be taken apart, dried properly, and eventually cleaned with circuit cleaning solution.
If problem stops when you turn to external display, then probably it is water or oxide in LCD ribbon cable connectors.
