After spilling a drink on my computer, I have gone through the arduous process of trying to troubleshoot and fix my computer problems. At first, the computer would run for about 10 seconds before restarting and then fail to post afterwards. To try and fix this I got a new motherboard and reinstalled everything. This made it so it would turn on, and just not post without restarting. There would be no beeps and no input to the monitor. Not sure what to do, I had a computer store diagnose it. They said that they ruled out everything except the CPU, so that the problem was probably the CPU. I went a bought a new CPU and installed it and now the computer immediately restarts (like 2 seconds after turning it on) continuously. Interestingly, if I remove the RAM, the computer will not restart but will do the 3 beeps and just not post.
