Thank you for your help in advance.
I recently bought this computer (yes I should've built my own but I just didn't feel like I could do it, also this computer came in monday and I haven't even made the first payment yet which is why I seem so desperate/stressed) I went for a glass of water and tipped it over (not much was left in the glass maybe a fourth of the glass and not much even got out [if I had to guess I would say 2-4 fl oz]) but some leaked into the top of my tower while it was running and trickled down into the systems, the computer froze and I unplugged it immediately. I took it apart and removed all of the components I knew how to (the memory, hard drives, and the graphics card) I have them laying on a towel and a fan pointing at them to help them dry, I checked the capacitors to see if they were shorted out and to my knowledge they didn't look shorted out (please tell me if you want a picture of the motherboard and I will supply) I took a hair dryer and proceeded to attempt to dry the inside(I held down the cool function so it only blew room temperature air and not heated air) and now I am letting a fan dry the mother board and other components as well.
any help at all would be greatly appreciated and also some answers
1.) if I did short something out would their be a way to repair it(specifically the mother board as that's what I'm most concerned about since I have read that if I short that out I'm screwed) I'm not a master at computers but I can get by with what I know if it comes to repairs.
2.) approximately how long should I let it dry, not much water got in but I want to be at my best conditions when turning it back on again
3.) I have it laying upside down against my dresser with the side pannel off and a fan blowing at it (is this ok or should I lay it down)
answers to future questions
1.) no electrical sounds came out at the moment of the disaster
2.) there are no burning smells/burn marks anywhere on the computer/components that I can see.
Picture of the motherboard (I think) if you need pictures of theothers pleas tell me and let me know thank you.
