Water spilled on a stationary computer

Recommended Posts

Hi friends, 


I used the computer and accidentally spilled a glass of water some of the water was spilled on the stationary computer and before I could turn it off myself it just turned off. 


I wiped all the water I saw I opened the whole case and it seems that the whole area of ​​the CPU motherboard and video card was not damaged at all by the water. 



My main concern is about the power supply, currently about two hours have passed and when I tried the computer did not turn on (made half a second life signs and turned off) 


Power Supply rm650


Is there a way to check if the power is burned? 

What is recommended to do in such situations?

Try to turn it on through the board if by shortening the pins. Remove the restart connection from the board, it may shorten.


Thank you! I tried to create a short in the motherboard and it did not help :(


Probably a problem with the CPU or motherboard, I checked the computer with a voltmeter and tried to connect all the removable components including a video card to another system and they worked

I tested it with a volt meter power peak, after the test I also connected it to another system that even requires a little more than mine and it worked peaks.


Eventually I came to the conclusion that the problem is with the processor or motherboard. And I sent the computer for testing.

After that I will probably be replaced (On the recommendation of the great people here in the pre-purchase consulting forum) and if there is no choice I will also replace a processor.
