Water spills are almost always fatal for laptops. Try this. Pull the battery out. Wrap the laptop in paper towels,put the laptop in a bag of White rice for 24 hours. Then plug the laptop in without the battery and see if the light is on the ac adapter. Turn the laptop on and check the light again. If it doesn't work you will need to replace the keyboard and motherboard. This is usually not worth doing on older laptops.

HP 6735s will not boot.


Remove the battery, place the laptop in a warm, dry and sunny spot for several days so it dries out completely. Replace the battery and see if the laptop boots up.
If not then the laptop maybe beyond repair, especially when water was spilt on the laptop when it was running. This could have caused some electronic components to short out.

Accidental Coverage


This is an issue you will have to take up with the company that you purchased your warranty from. Policies vary, and I would have no way of knowing any of this without seeing your policy. However, I can tell you from experience that most warranties will only cover hardware malfunction and not user caused damaged. Don't be surprised if they deny your warranty because spilling water into it isn't covered.
