So, clumsy me spilled (not even a teaspoon) of sugar water on the bottom of my laptop which i didn't notice until i booted up. Results were, starting up normally, but within the minute i heard a continuing high-pitched noise and got a black screen, couldn't shut down bc power button refused service so obviously i removed the charger and battery, opened up the laptop and checked it inside out for spillmarks, followed by a thorough cleaning. After this i left the laptop to dry for the night.
The next morning i put it all back together, turned it back on again, and it worked like a charm. Only defect i noticed were the usb ports as well as the mic and headphone jacks not responding. 1 usb port still bravely fought on and refused service at a later time (this port is on the oposite side of the laptop from the other ports and jacks).
I allready tried every test for a possible software malfunction so i can rule that out. And i tried every port with multiple usb devices to rule out defective external hardware
My bet would be either the motherboard got damaged to some extend, or i missed something putting the whole thing back together (unlikely bc one of the ports still showed life)
I just disassembled and assembled following a guide and don't know the function of any cable or connection so i wouldn't know where to start looking. As far as i noticed nothing got visually fried.
My question to you good people is as following:
Is there anything obvious i might've overlooked or anything i could try before i leave it to professionals and watch my wallet bleed dry.
