    I'm a stupid dog :( I got some cheap coffee from McDonald's and spilled coffee in my car, then I spilled some more on my jacket when walking and then some more on my laptop.

    Dogs can't drink coffee :(

    Now the laptop won't turn on, any advice?

    huh! Happened to me, once. But it was rain water. Almost, 1/2 litre..I just made sure all water is out and kept it like that for 5 days, only because I had no time to take it to the customer care. Guess what..It worked after 5 days, I just plugged in the charger. I might have got lucky, probably. It's Dell Inspiron N4010.
    What is yours? Macbook?

    You need to clean and dried under the sun for 2 days and swak it will be okay, If not proceed to repair shop or service center.

    turn it off, take battery out, drain all you can and then cover it with rice in a warm place. The rice will suck up the moisture...

    Do not turn it on a while, leave it for like 2 or 3 days to fully dry.

    This is generally the way people go. I sometimes also open it up and figure out a way to flip it upside down so the liquid in the keys drips out.

    The rice will attract asian guys and they will repair it for him, while he is sleeping.

    Logically, the next step would be to sue McDonald's for not putting the coffee in a spill-proof sippy cup.

    Bonus points if the coffee was slightly too hot.
