If youre lucky only the keyboard is damaged but its very likely the motherboard is fried unless you were able to cut all power before the milk hit the motherboard.

If the computer does NOT turn on that's a serious problem.

In some cases, the problem can be addressed by removing the main components (battery, hard drive, RAM, keyboard) that can be accessed and blowing air into it with a hair dryer on LOW HEAT for five minutes to evaporate the remaining liquid.

Unfortunately, if you drop liquid on a working computer you may create a short circuit that damages vital components.

*If you smell something burning or see any smoke you've definitely destroyed some main components that likely mean the laptop is unsalvageable.

Nothing you can do now except wait for the milk to dry out before attempting to turn on the laptop. Put it in the warmest place in the apartment / house. It make take a couple of days for it to dry out.

Worst case scenario is the laptop short circuit and is now dead.

I'm sorry. You're an idiot, and just asking for more trouble. And you're obviously not old enough to be on these forums

You had some advise. With that attitude probably not going to get much more.
About time you learn to grow up.

And people wonder why children get beat, with attitudes like that some need a good butt whooping and maybe some military school.

remove any power, ac power and remove the battery. turn laptop upside down so the liquid does not work
into the internals of the laptop. get a can of compressed air or take the laptop to a garage that has a air compressor that you can use to blow compressed air into the laptop keyboard to blow out the liquid before it dries. get a bag of rice put it in a cloth bag and place the laptop keyboard down on the bag of rice, place both the bag of rice and laptop in a paper bag for 24 hours to 48 hours.

at this point you can either take the machine apart and inspect or just provide power and see if the machine works as expected. I would just install the AC power not the battery at first to see if it works. (laptop batteries are expensive and you don't want to needlessly fry one)

good luck
