Solved!

Spilled juice on laptop and worked fine until I turned it off and tried to turn it back on.

Not a lot of juice spilled but apparently enough to hurt my laptop. It spilled on the top right corner of the keyboard and I immediately wiped it all up and the laptop seemed to be fine. I turned it off and when I came back to use it, it would not turn on. It also made a sizzling noise on the top right side. Help!

The sizzling sound was likely the sound of your motherboard shorting out (dying). The juice probably gradually seeped down inside and when you applied power again- zap.

 

For what it is worth now-any time liquid is spilled on a laptop it should immediately be powered off, battery & power cord removed and the laptop placed upside down for at least 24 hrs to drain any tiny bit of liquid.

Okay so if the motherboard died, then there's no fixing the laptop without replacing it right? Also how much do motherboards cost, do you know?

If you could even find the right motherboard it would probably cost as much to purchase & have someone install it as buying a new laptop. Other motherboards may work-but your Windows would deactivate when started up on new board. IF the license key on label underneath is still legible you "might" be able to use it to re-activate Windows on a new board.

While searching for a motherboard I came across the same laptop for less than $300:
