SOURCE: spill soda on my laptop keyboard
It is likely the only problem is that the soda is causing the keys to stick. There is probably no damage to any other internal components. Usually, laptop keyboards have a metal-based frame/tray that will protect the internal components from minor spills.
If you want to get rid of the cracking sound, you'll need to purchase a replacement keyboard from the laptop manufacturer or another source such as eBay, and then remove the sticky keyboard and replace it with the newly purchased one.

Do you have an HP Accidental Damage extended warranty? If you do, you can call HP's tech support and get it fixed/replaced.
If you don't have the extra warranty, you can try to carefully pop the keyboard keys off and carefully clean underneath as the contacts below the keys are possibly stuck in the down position.
You may have to take it to a service centre and have a technician open up the laptop and see if it can be cleaned and try to "unstuck" the keyboard keys.

If the space bar works but is sticky, try removing the spacebar and expose the hinges. Clean the liquid off with a moist cotton bud. Then fix the spacebar back in place, line the spacebar up and press gently until you hear the hinges click into place on the spacebar.
If the spacebar does not work as it should or it won't click back in place, then the only option is to replace the keyboard.
Keyboards are available on the Internet, I purchased one from Yall Store.

The issue could be with many cause. In order to isolate this issue I request you to perform the below steps :
To get started, find a soft, lint-free cloth and some window cleaner like Windex. Turn laptop upside down and give it a gentle shake. This will clear out dust and debris that has fallen in between the keys. If your vacuum has a soft brush attachment, you can vacuum the keyboard gently, too.
Now, spray a tiny bit of Windex on your cloth. You do not want it wet, just barely damp.
Gently scrub all the areas around the keys of your keyboard. Watch for an excess fluid squeezing out of your cloth. Should this happen, dab it up quickly.
Once the housing for the keys is cleaned, focus on cleaning the keys themselves. Gently stroke the keys with the barely damp cloth, repeating strokes until each key is cleaned.
Badly soiled keys can be (try and if are not difficult to pull them out do not attempt) pried off the board, cleaned and snapped back into place.
You can clean crevices by wrapping your cloth over a table knife and carefully and gently running it between keys. Do not push down into the mechanisms below the keys, though.
Once you have cleaned the keyboard to your satisfaction, let it set to dry for half an hour, just in case it is damp.
Also note that office supply stores sell cans of air. It's not just air; it's air that comes out of the can with enough pressure to push dust out of places it shouldn't be. The cans come with little straw-like tubes that you can attach to the sprayer so that you can get inside your removable drives and between the keys of your keyboard.
