QUIT applying power to it. REMOVE the battery. Applying any form of electricity can/will kill the components on your motherboard until you have removed the contaminates off your logic board. You will need to remove your motherboard to clean it. Instructions for logic board removal are here. Instructions for cleaning your liquid damaged motherboard are here. Please follow these instructions then put it back together and let us know the results. Thank you and have a wonderful day!

and what if it got fried? I have the same problem (oatmeal spilled in back of the computer, entered into computer via the spacing between the screen hinge). If after cleaning it doesnt power up, then what needs to be replaced?
