    Accidentally spilled some soy sauce into the USB ports of my Lenovo laptop while having meals nearby. Fortunately, it was turned off and was not a lot of sauce

    Now I haven't turned it ON yet. Should I do anything (and how?) to make the juicy sauce drip out from the computer as much as possible before turning on again? Could it be any problem to the laptop or cause any components fried?

    Use some distilled water or even some high percentage rubbing alcohol (75 or 91% or so) on a paper towel or q-tips and try to clean up as much as you can. Water isn't the problem, what it dissolves is the problem, and unfortunately soy sauce is full of all kinds of electrolytes, so you really want to do as much as you can to clean it out.
