Turned laptop upside down and drained water on towel over night.  It powered up briefly next day that stopped.   On button lights up, but screen is black and keyboard isn’t working neither is mouse. How can I get

Turn the laptop OFF -- and do NOT turn it back ON!!

Here are some tips on dealing with liquid damage: http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/you-just-spilled-water-or-coffee-on-your-laptop-heres-what-you-should-d...

However ... it's most likely that SOME damage was done, regardless of how quickly you turned off the laptop and what you did afterward. The key problems are only the surface and almost certainly, more damage was done than that.

The ONLY way to know for sure is to take or send it to an HP Service Center and pay a LOT of money for them to run full diagnostics on it, and after that, to disassemble it to repair or replace any damaged components.

And, if the motherboard is damaged, the cost of repair can easily exceed the cost of replacing the laptop -- because (as far as I know) liquid spill damage is NOT covered under the warranty.

Since you live in the U.S., here is a link to the HP Service Repair Centers:
