Have a look at out OS X troubleshooting guide:

Basic OS X/Mac Troubleshooting

Start at step 6 and work your way down. Let us know if you need any additional help.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
