I accidently spilt coffee over my laptop this morning and while it was still on and drying it up in the process, my keyboard stopped working. I decided to switch it off, but now I am regretting I did that because it won't switch back on.

Have I screwed up my laptop for good? Is there anyway I can save my hard drive in  it? It is just a mission to restart everything over again and honestly I don't want too. I've only backed up about 60% of everything on it.

At that point what I would do is remove the battery, dip the whole thing in alcohol, get a large container filled with rice and leave the laptop in there overnight. Might MAYBE revive it, but it looks like you might be too late. Best thing to do when your electronics are wet is always to cut off the power immediately and soak up the liquids. Coffee is pretty awful, though, that stuff is seriously sticky (which is why i'm recommending the rubbing alcohol).

Lots of good suggestions here.

At the end of the day all is a big MAYBE, sorry dude :s
Please some updates if any of the ideas here helped you!

BTW: the rice is an amazing thing to do always.

Hm...the "dip it in alcohol / distilled water" thing works for phones..but wouldn't the alcohol ruin the plastic cover of the screen?
