I had an accident where some water spilled into my tower(my sig rig v_v). I quickly turned it off and detached the components to set them to the side to dry. They have finished drying and I proceeded to test the components to see if there are any damage(only thing left to stress test is memory, but that will be an overnight thing with memtest. tho at this point I think they are good.). And these are the results I have found so far.

The graphics card is dead... Well I guess I will have to start looking for a new one... Suggestions? (This is a side question, feel free to ignore it.)


Now onto the only other thing that seemed to have been affected. The motherboard(Asrock z77 extreme 4.). It seems to be working just fine except for a few things(which are probably the same thing more or less.).

It doesn't completely power off when I tell windows to shut down. Windows logs off and the screen goes blank, even the little light next to the power button/light stops blinking(which I have always assume was how active the hard drive is.), but the system doesn't turn off. I have found that the only way to power it off(besides unplugging it.) is to hold the power button for the 10-15 seconds to force it to power off.

It can restart, but it hangs for a little while in ^ state before finishing powering down and proceeding to reboot just fine.

If I am in the bios/uefi and then try to exit it. it hangs for a while right after I press exit, the mouse can't move during this time, and then it powers off and reboots with any new settings(tho a change in settings is not required either.) I have made.


So what should I do? I am fine with it if I have to hold the power button to completely power it down, but I am worried that this might cause other problems.

If the motherboard is working improperly after a liquid spill I'd recommend replacing it. Even if you can live with it, the problems you are having are indicators that it is damaged physically, and you don't want to take the risk of it damaging your other components.

I had already ordered for another motherboard(exact same one since I don't want to deal with a fresh install right now.), since I thought that there might be a problem. I was just making sure that I wasn't wasting my money for no reason.
