|Just screw it open and see which parts need replacement. Your fan will probably be worthless now with the soda dripping all over it.|
|it's funny because there was a lava lamp and the cover of 1 reminds me of one.|
on the upside 4 rules
|Was it running and were you able to pull the power?|
|Was the soda diet? |
|Damn that sucks man.|
On another note, 2, 3 and 9 are awesome, major props for those.
|bro you need to learn computers better|
you can't put soda on them!
|You should be careful with gadgets esp. when they're near liquids and vice versa. |
You should have not tried to boot it up when it's still wet right?
|Realistically you shouldn't have tried to boot it up until you've pulled everything and inspected it particularly if the pop was sugary. On the upside if the computer was newer you can probably salvage some of it. I would think the Mobo, discrete graphics card, RAM, CPU fan and PSU to be the most likely to be damaged. Any or all components could have been though.|
|I shut it down as soon as it happened and didn't boot it again until I had popped it open and wiped everything down, once to soak up the soda and once to clean the affected areas of the sticky. Only reason I thought to even boot it again was that nothing much really happened when the hardware came in contact with the liquid. No sparks, popping, anything. I think the thing I'm most concerned with recovering is going to be my music folder given that my lazy arse never backs anything up, aha. Right now I'm under the impression that the motherboard was fried somewhat discreetly during the whole ordeal, per my father who built the tower for me years upon years back. |
