Hi everyone, needless to say this has been a pretty frustrating night so far. I have a Dell Dimension 8200 and I run Windows XP Home Edition. My room mate spilled a drink on the TOP of my computer but at the time, nothing happened so I figured that I would dry it off and its fine. Well not long after, it all of a sudden formally shut down (Windows is saving your settings...Windows is shutting down, etc.) Somehow it started to boot itself up and it would get to the DELL BIOS screen and shut down. It's doing this in a cycle and not stopping. I have already tried to boot it in safe mode but when I try the two options it gives me (F2 and F12), it only gives me this annoying buzzing noise which I can only assume is the computer screaming at me that it can't do it. I'm hoping the drink had nothing to do with it. I can't help but thing that if it was the issue, then my computer wouldn't boot at all. I would have researched it a lot more from the internet but between it doing this and my room mate, I am pretty frustrated.
