Is it work checking the the micro switch contacts if the battery is charging power's getting through? my guess may be the switch is corroded or juice damaged

I've taken out everything removable and still no joy. No spare keyboard to use to test unfortunately. I could take my own off my laptop and use that but I am reluctant to.
I have had a look at the battery contacts and they seem fine. (The battery itself is definitely OK). If the contacts were damaged, it would still work on the mains? or not? It doesn't

Take EVERYTHING that can be removed, and stick it in your laptop [Or vice versa.] Then try to turn the one with all the bits on.

Hi Witch... I spotted this post and can empathise - most amusing... but equally sad :S
I had a Sony Vaio and my 2 year old daughter tipped half a pint of milk in the keyboard and didnt tell anyone. An hour later when I picked it up there was milk pouring out of the memory cover underneath. Obviously no chance of it turning on - however about a week later it suddenly started working again and the only damage was some keys not working - one new keyboard later and presto... unfortunately sounds like you aren't so lucky.

I've tried the hard drive and nothing.
