I got a lenovo thinkpad e530c
The laptop has been flooded with a small bit of beer, according to previous owner he turned it right off, anyway i cleaned mothereboard and all and it runs but it wont turn on when the keyboard is connected , even the charging light wont come on when plugged in, keyboard is dry, i dont see how a keyboard could short out that much.. any ideas?

Yes a bad keyboard can cause a system not to turn on, or it may be the motherboard keyboard connector that is bad. Laptop keyboards for many models are pretty cheap on ebay, get a replacement and see if that helps.

Sure there is something you can do, replace they keyboard and see if that fixes the issue. You are not going to fix spill hardware damage with anything other than replacing the hardware in question.
