    Around 7-8 hours ago, I spilled some milk tea on my laptop. it was only a splash on the left side. I immediately took off the charger and battery and dried the tea off. I then flipped it upside down like a tent to let it drain for a while. Now I reinserted the battery and it turned for a few seconds and shut off. I reconnected the charger, it showed the light which indicates charging but didn't turn on except for a few seconds. I also put it out in the the sunlight . could that have caused it to overheat?

    It's probably been damaged by the liquid. However, you can try putting it into a large bag and completely submerge it in rice for about 2-3 days. Then try to repower it on. If it still doesn't work, it's probably toast.
