Water damaged

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
hello everyone, i have a biggg problem with my pc.
I accidently dropped a glass of water on top of my antec 900 case, through the big fan on top
Water reached directly my gtx780ti, my ram, psu, and my mobo at different areas
I turned the pc off directly, cleaned it up a little bit, then turned the pc on about 10mins later. Now it doesnt boot, the psu lights up for 0.5sec, then turns off.
I can see some mobo lights still even if the pc is not turned on

Any ideas on what i have to do to save it? Or any hint on what component should be replaced?
Thanks a lot

Here's reality.

You can try and diagnose it one item at a time and risk never finding it OR you can get a new board/processor and go from there .... or build a new box ..... which would be more fun/expensive.

Question.


Did you learn anything from this?

Personally, I would disassemble the PC and lay out all of the parts to dry out. Give them ample time to dry out, like possibly overnight or for 24 hours. That would definitely be my starting point.

I hope everything works out for you, that's definitely a crappy situation.

You never want to turn on wet electronics. Agree with the let it dry for a day and see what happens.

Might want to keep future pc's in a spot that you can't easily spill liquids in them.

your mobo (and most likely your CPU) are dead. More than likely the water hit the power socket on the mobo, which in my experience has also fried my CPU. Based on your post, this seems most likely. As @ssiperko said get new components. Get a new CPU and mobo and see if everything works.

Good luck!

So no updates? Is your hardware dead, or what's up?
