Unfortunately a standard warranty doesn't usually cover such things. I have been able to recover a laptop then this does happen though. I immediately remove the battery. Take the laptop appart, and dip and wash it in a shallow pan half-full of rubbing alcohol. I then use a VERY soft brush, especially if it had cream or milk in it, and then a soft can of air to blow it all dry. It is not for the faint of heart though, of course. It takes hours. If a tech does it, he either owes you a favor or it will probably cost more than the laptop is worth! :-) If you can't do anything else, just remove the batter at least--and do it immediately! Then find someone to help.
