  • There's not much you can do -- you're likely looking at replacing at least a mainboard;  if the system is more than about three years old and/or cost less than $700 new, it's likely better to replace the system rather than repair it.

  • Since hot chocolate is partially a water based probably fried the motherboard. If you are out of warranty or if you voided the warranty (I think you did) then it's probably better to sell the laptop for parts and shop for a new one.
