Hey there guys. I need help with a computer that was in a slight water flood and became damaged. The computer now doesn't power on.
I want to know where do I start as far as what to test first, or replace. The water level reached about 1/4 of the way up the tower to about the first PCI slot in the motherboard. And also just to put it out there, the computer was plugged in to the electrical outlet at the time it happened. I'm pretty sure that the motherboard is probably fried, but what else could of become damaged as well?
The only thing I've done is replace the PSU with a good working PSU and still the computer would not power on, when I press the "on" button, nothing happens. The only sign of life, is a little green light on the motherboard itself.
So, i guess my question is: where can I start to see if this system is fixable? And what parts would become damaged in such a situation (motherboard, CPU, PSU, RAM, Hard drive, etc...)
Would it be better to just build a new computer?
Thanks for the help.
