Banana pulp got into the laptop through the docking socket area. Already disassembled the laptop, and cleaned as much pulp as I can see from the bottom side of the motherboard, as well as surrounding area.

When connecting AC without battery, the power light and cord lights are on, battery flashing, caps lock and num lock come on and off as normal, but screen stays black. Same with battery.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
