Front white light flashes 3 times, screen off, just DVD spinning sound

I was working with my computer when a small jar of perfume (200 ml) fell on the keyboard (1 feet high).

Suddenly the monitor went off.

I turned the computer off, but when I tried to turn it on again, it just makes the DVD spinning sound, and the front white light flashes 3 times-pause-three times repeatedly.

The monitor does not turn on. the keyboard is death (no caps key green light on/off).

Due to the accident, I do not think it is a RAM failure. I checked inside the computer and fans go on and the hard drive is working. Light sensors work (changes in the intensity of the white front light).

The logic board does not look broken. The jar did not cause any damage on the body just a broken "C" key.

<i reseted PRAM: no luck.

Any idea?

looking at the disassembly for the keyboard your ram is directly under it..i'd try a known good stick or a good clean of the existing ram to rule it out. I thought the 3 beeps was a ram fault?? could be wrong!
