Okay so last night I got fairly wasted, when I woke up this morning my computer was a little wet. I am not sure exactly what on the insides got wet. The computer was constantly restarting, only being on for a  couple seconds before rebooting. The computer had plenty of dust inside the CPU and everywhere else, so I made sure to blow all of that out. After that I tried turning it on and it turned on for 3 seconds, restarted, then stayed on. However there was no display, so I turned it off by holding the button down. Afterwards it went back to just restarting every few seconds.


I have two 4gb sticks of RAM. I took them both out and tried putting them in each RAM slot one at a time, nothing helped. I also tried starting with no RAM and without my graphics card.


All my fans turn on and the lights turn on on the motherboard.


Please help me troubleshoot.

Wet...from what?  What is the source of the moisture?
