Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
The most likely explanation is that your hard drive has failed. You can try removing and reseating it. Failing that, borrow one for testing or buy a new one. As a last resort, try putting the hard drive ( or even the whole laptop ) in the refrigerator overnight. Really! :) If this restores operation even temporarily you definitely have a bad hard drive.

That error usually indicates one of two things, your file system is corrupt and the master boot record or partition tables have corrupted.... or, in light of a liquid being spilled, some possibly got into the laptop.
I'm not sure right off the top of my head, but I think the hard drive has an access door on the bottom. Which you can remove a couple screws to remove the cover. I would visually inspect under that cover, and other covers if any while your at it, to check for any signs that liquid got in it.
