HP Notebook won’t turn on after liquid spill

HP Recommended
HP Notebook 14-bp151na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

After a recent liquid spill, my HP Notebook won’t start-up. At the time, I removed as much of the liquid from the surface of the machine as possible. I then left it for several days to dry out, before trying to use it again.

 

Today, I tried to turn it on. At first, there was no activity with the LEDs. So, I followed the instructions of the virtual agent to remove the battery (built-in on this computer), and reset the machine. I then plugged the AC adapter in, and both the power and AC charging LEDs flashed once quickly. I now get the power LED on, but no orange or white AC charging LED. However, the power button doesn’t turn the Notebook on. There’s no keyboard LEDs, fan activity, etc.

 

I realise it’s hard to diagnose the exact damage without taking it all apart, testing the motherboard, etc. But is there anything else that I could try?
