since you spilled the water when the laptop was on, the internal ciruits could have been short ciruited. you cannot repair it yourself. please contact a nearby service center. they will give you the information regarding whether it can be fixed or not. but my guess is that it cannot be fixed easily. beacause short ciruits generally blows of the ciruit completely and things like soldering also won't help.

good luck

I spilled water on my laptop

Sorry about your laptop, I don't think there is anything you can do about it now except salvage components that didn't get fried.

For future reference: You should unplug, power down, and remove batteries immediately when electronics are contaminated by liquids. Then you can attempt to dry them out, but don't be in a hurry to re apply power, as if there is any liquid shorting circuits, it will cause further damage to the device. Warm air from a blow dryer with all possible openings opened on the device and changing its position periodically and continue for a day or so after all signs of moisture are gone and you may have half of a chance of reviving the device (in this case your laptop).
You can try this now, but after five days of attempts to restart the laptop with power to it, I doubt it will work.

Good luck in the future.

No power

Any hope you may have left other than an expensive repair, is to remove the battery and leave the unit in an airing cupboard for a week and pray. Then replace the battery and try again. No change - then nothing lost. I know it's basic, and best done as soon as the damage was done, but has worked for me in similar circumstances. Don't be tempted to use a warm oven.
