    Break into the zoo and get an ant eater. It won't take long after that.

    Put a thick cloth/towel under the laptop try to close all exhaust(side one with the same cloth) for a few minutes this will raise the temperature inside the laptop which makes ants uncomfortable and they come out on clothes and buttons, know you can blow/wipe them.

    Getting rid of the ants in laptops requires time and patience The best thing to do is to open up the laptop and slowly vacuum the ants. If you are inexperienced with laptop hardware or opening electronic devices, you should take the laptop to the computer store, and they will open it up and remove the ants for you.

    Shut it off, Put it in a plastic bag, and into the freezer overnight.

    Take it out and use compressed air to blow the frozen ants out.  

    They will revive so act fast.

    There are a number of solutions proposed online for insects in computers, a few specifically for ants. So try what sounds reasonable. But first, back up all your files (which you should be doing anyway), in case things go badly.

    The sites warn strongly not to use aerosol insect killers, as they can cause fire. They also advise you not to simply kill the ants but to remove them, dead or alive.

    The suggestions that seem most promising to me, in no particular order:

    First, turn off the computer. Remove the power cord and the battery. Take it apart further if you are comfortable doing so, and don't if you're not. Over a disposable surface like newspaper or a cloth you can shake out, use compressed air to blow into all openings. Dead ants will blow out. Living ones may, too.

    Do the same as above, but use a vacuum cleaner attachment to suck at all openings.

    Put ant baits several inches away from the computer. You can try multiple types of baits, but you do not want to use baits that contain something that will kill the ants. What you want is their removal, not for them to poison themselves and crawl back in there to die. You might do fine with something sweet and sticky mixed on/in something disposable, like the lid to a jar. Use a vacuum cleaner to suck them up when they're at your bait or simply pick up the disposable bait and throw it away.

    Find a sealable plastic bag big enough to hold the laptop. Put the laptop inside. Lay a piece of plastic wrap, a styrofoam tray, or a piece of vinyl on top of the laptop. (This will protect its surface.) Moisten a rag in aerosol or spray ant killer, set it entirely on the protective plastic or vinyl, and seal the bag. Wait a full week for it to work. When the time is up, use compressed air to clear out any ants that might have died inside.
