Motherboard is fried..maybe around 125 to 200...not too hard to fix..I'd recommend a new uP too, and maybe memory sticks..

How to Fix Spilt Liquid on bda25ce.jpg?
You accidentally knocked fruit drink or a late night glass of milk on your laptop or your child spilled a good portion of milk directly into your keyboard. You hear a popping noise, the screen goes black. Water by itself is not as bad as milk or juice, both of which are corrosive/acidic, or coffee, tea, soda, etc.
First and most important -Calm Down and unplug the computer from its power source.
Disconnect it from the power cord and remove the battery. If needs, please remove the keyboard. The old adage - Water and Electricity don't mix - is quite true. For your laptop spilled water, let your laptop dry. Do not attempt to turn on the computer for at least 72 hours. Let it sit in a cool, dry place. If you disassembled the laptop, reassemble it after 72 hours have passed.

Both usb ports and card reader on right hand side of laptop and keys 7, 8, 9 u, j and m and some others to right of board sont work

Sorry to hear about that...
The selective components not working are indicative of a spill on your computer.
Depending on what was spilled will depend on how it can be fixed if at all.
If just water, then hopefully it will dry out and all will be well unless something shorted out (made an electrical connection with the water) where there was not supposed to be a connection.
If something other than water, the residue may still be preventing the proper electrical path for everything to work right.
I suggest disassembly and examination to be certain. If it were JUST the keyboard, or JUST the USB, it would be different.
I have taken my laptop apart to repair the fan, and could have replaced the keyboard or any other part... you may want to give that a thought.

I spilled water on my laptop

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
