Laptop shows 'No Bootable Device' Error following water spill, is my motherboard dead?

I spilled water on the table, and some water spread across my laptop surface, keyboard. The water pooled on the surface I was able to dry, however some must have seeped in as I could hear a statistic sound. I turned off my laptop, flipped it over and removed the battery. When I tried to start it up again, it said 'No Bootable Device'. I had my friend dis-assemble the laptop, and he tested the hard-drive, which is working perfectly. However, the laptop still won't work. He had trouble entering BIOS. Is this a motherboard issue?

Disconnect every wire and cord from your laptop, disconnect the battery, and, just in case, hold the power button for 1 minute. Do not put the battery back in and connect the cord again. Turn computer upside-down to avoid any short circuits (for example, a loose metal object connects two wires it should not) and while it is upside-down, turn the computer on. If it is still not responding, then it can be the ribbon cord that goes from the power supply input circuitry into the motherboard. It can also a problem with your power button. Lastly, it can be the motherboard or CPU failure. If that is the case, it is better to bring the notebook to the nearest service center.
