toshiba satellite L455D-S6976 keyboard got wet

I have read thru and only found the one with similar problem except theirs was still working, i spilled a tiny amount of dr pepper on the right lower side of my laptop keyboard affecting the return key, shift and alt keys bur my computer was plugged into the wall and it went totally dead and has not powered up since, it is not even a year old, i am disabled and it is my own livelihood and i was throwing my hands up in despair over kids when i spilled it, i am down with pneumonia and have just about given up, would it be cost effective to have it fixed or buy another laptop? or is there something i can do myself wince the one year warranty is almost up anyways, i am pretty good at fixing things if i have directions, i am just sick with myself..please help

Try to avoid details that don't pertain to the laptop under discussion. Otherwise folk may pass up a discussion.

Try this forum's Welcome post and try the generic reset there. As you have learned, laptops and liquids are a bad mix. If the generic reset does not work the usual repair bill can get you some laptop albeit 299 or 399 at walmart or dell.

Here's why. The motherboards are rarely fixed but are replaced in such failures.
