I am sorry to hear that, if you have a damage protection warrantee on your laptop, I would suggest you contact your manufacturer and have them fix it or replace the damaged part(s) If you do not have one I would suggest you wait a few days see if the circuits dry and hope there is no permanent damage, and if there is not then it might turn on If there is permanent damage you will have to contact your manufacturer and get a quote on paying them to inspect it and see what the problem is and if it is fixable And if the laptop is permanently damaged, then you will have to replace the laptop I am sorry to say.
