A little water on the logic board is like being a little pregnant, it tends to grow and does not go away on it's own. It probably got in via the keyboard and now the keyboard has shorted out. Most of the time with both the keyboard and the logic board involved it is economically unfeasible to restore. Try putting a similar amount of water on your shirt and watch how far it spreads. Tell us more about the parts you have replaced and how the water entered, how long the corrosion went on.
