Dead HP omnibook

I have an omnibook 6000 where someone has poured a cup of coffee over it.

I stripped the machine, cleaned & dried it and reassembled it, and of course it will not start.

The machine has 3 status lights which blink when I connect to the external power supply, but there are no BIOS beeps, the fan does not start, nothing at all.

Before I go out & buy a replacement laptop, does anybody have any ideas, tips or tricks?

Ok, I've tried that. Also tried removing disk, RAM, netcard, keyboard. Always the same result.
