However - by pressing ctrl+alt+del and accessing task manager, I could run a new program from there, I opened the native Internet Explorer and could even download and install Chrome. I'd been on this support website since 2AM YESTERDAY, and ended up falling asleep, but, like you, I was drinking coffee. When I woke up, I guess I was exhausted and passed out, but coffee with creamer was spilt on me, my desk, and my computer! Interestingly, the screen was still on, everything was working, until it was powerered off to assess any damage.
So, following the documentation on my Notebooks product service guide, I carefully removed the interior assemblies methodically as I inspected for damage. There was some seepage, butnot too bad. I was able to carefully clean anything that had come into contact with the coffee with electronic contact cleaner, not water or windex or something like that. Then I reassembled it without any problem, and it looked perfect. But: while the LED glows orange next to the DC power input: it will not start!!!!
This wouldn't have even happened if the **bleep** laptop hadn't done this auto bios update almost every other post on here is about!!
I don't know what to do anymore. 😖

Welcome to HP Forums and Thanks for the post.
I understand that your computer is not booting and you are not getting any display. Happy to help.
Kudos to you for trying to clean the computer.
Do you hear anything from the computer when you power it ON?
I would recommend you to contact our phone support for the service options if the issue is caused due to a liquid spill.
To rollback BIOS, follow the instructions mentioned in this article. (Hold Win + B on startup to restore BIOS.)
