Question about Toshiba Satellite A85-S107 Notebook
There are a couple of things that probably got wet.
First of all, if it is still wet, you need to get it upside down, and get it open to dry it out, use alcohol to clean off the stained areas.
If you remove the screws on the back, and get the power strip with the lights on the top of the keyboard off. It pops off very carefully, but you need to unscrew the retainer screws poss in the battery compartment, or just on the bottom.
Also, once that strip is off, you should be able to unscrew a couple screws to get the keyboard off. There might be a screw or two on the bottom again, holding the keyboard down.
My guess is the keyboard is hosed, literally. I just had a customer who has a wine spill, and after clean up, everything but the keyboard worked.
Make sure you clean out the power area, up by the power switch, speakers, and whatever else is up there.
Worst case, you might need to take it to a repair shop to get the whole body cleaned out down into the motherboard.
Lastly, you can carefully remove the monitor faceplate with the screws hidden by rubber buttons, and then look at the electronics on the bottom and see if they are stained and wet. Your inverter could have gotten wet. That is the slim little metal/covered device at the bottom of the screen.
Get it dried out, and cleaned with alcohol. Many times the keyboard has to be replaced, but it still should start up if the rest of the computer is working ok. It depends, some models will not start up with a keyboard that is bad.

Not much, if you are lucky the hard disk may be OK and you can use it as an external hard drive if you insert it into an USB hard disk adapter case.
