I just checked the temps of my CPU and GPU, and they were bad. So I went and bought some compressed air, and cleaned it out. Fixed it right up, worked for about 20 mins, then suddenly froze.

Turning it back on resulted in a message that said something like
"Pheonix BIOS; Version: x
No bios Found."

Which confused me, since it said the version and stuff, but said it wasnt found- but anyway.

I restarted and now it just does nothing. Fans turn on, and stay on until I cut the power. Theres only the yellow light showing its powering up and nothing else.

What I assume happened is some liquid from the air got on the MoBo, but I dont even know if that would ruin it our not.

Any ideas?

Yeah I did. I mean, I didnt even disconnect anything but fans, but even still I looked.

Also; I noticed some stuff talking about interpreting the beeps, but it doesnt (didnt), make any noise. I just tried it a few more times and for some reason it worked and turned on like normal

Still, incase it happens again, any idea whats wrong?

It is quite possible you wet something on the board if you overdid it and then it dried and it now works.

The liquid in canned air is just a propellant and won't damage the Mobo. The most likely scenario is as Rich-M suggests.

Right the wetness will not necessarily harm anything and then dry and all should work.
