I spilled water on the corner of my laptop keyboard and now it won't turn on. I'm hoping it's just a fucked battery, or something to do with the power, and that the motherboard is still alive. There was no smell, no other symptoms. It crashed and I switched it off, unplugged it, then set it upside-down overnight. I couldn't get the battery out as that requires unscrewing and I had no tools on me.

It's still dead, but it's been so cold that it wouldn't surprise me if there's still some moisture knocking around inside.

I'm going to buy a screwdriver set and have a poke around, but I'm not really sure what to look for -- how can I tell what part broke?

Am I better off taking it to a repair shop? Perhaps they test the components individually?

Model is a Lenovo Ideapad 320, if that matters.

Not the right place otherlad. If you're coming here to get your pc fixed you might as well hang round with a group of love and cherishers asking for the best lube.

It's almost certainly a motherboard fault. If you don't even own a screwdriver set, you have basically no chance of finding and fixing a blown component on a modern motherboard - they're absolutely teeny-tiny and require specialist tools and techniques to (de)solder. If you're lucky, there isn't any lasting damage, just a bit of lingering moisture or mineral residue that's preventing the machine from booting, so give it another day or two to dry off. If you're going to take the machine apart anyway, (carefully) remove the motherboard and thoroughly wash it in high-purity isopropyl alcohol.
