Hey,
I have a Toshiba Satellite a105-s4014 that my cousin accidentally spilled soup on the keyboard. Now it just turns on and it won't go past the toshiba page and it just shuts off after that.

Ok, it might have some soup in the circuit board making some sort of short circuit. Don't turn it on and just take it to the support center for a clean up.

Unless you want to disassemble it yourself and clean it up. There are a lot of guides for that, but I wouldn't recommend it. Also, get some circuit cleaner in spray. They do a wonderful job at cleaning circuit boards (hence the name, I guess, lol).

Cheers!

Once it's clean, do you think it would still work?

Did smoke came out?

Well... If it still turns on, but keeps going off right away, then it just needs a good clean up IMO. A friend of mine spilled some generic cola brand into her notebook and same scenario. Cleaned up and like new... Well, except that some keys got a little stuck, hahaha.

Cheers!
