My daughter spilled coffee on keyboard

So my daughter spilled about 1/4 cup of coffee on my keyboard. While on panic mode trying to clean up the keyboard I accidentally unplugged the ac power cord. It does not have the battery since at home I usually use my laptop on the ac power. I worried more about the keyboard and cleaning so it "wouldn't absorb" that I didn't turn upside down right away. Nor did I bother to look up online on my phone to see what to do. When I thought I had cleaned keyboard I plugged in the ac power thinking problem was solved, as soon as I plugged it in their was a loud beeping sound. Dumb me, I decided to press power button off and then on again. I did this about 2 times and then decided to unplug power cord. When I noticed their was some coffee coming out from under laptop. Not a lot, but some drops here and there. Does this mean my laptop is done or is there still some hope???

@yesenia_s ,Yesenia S. There is always hope! Do not try to power up the device any more, you may have already caused a short by doing so, you have to dismantled and clean liquid damage. Use the first link below, a guide to tear down your device and the second link is a general guide on how to clean up liquid damage/corrosion. The better job you do at cleaning the device, better odds of getting it up and running. Good luck.
