So, in the past my computer has had issues with freezing randomly, but since this only happened once or twice per week, I never devoted a ton of time into fixing it. But, during a storm this week, my place received heavy roof damage, and flooded quite a bit. I'm unsure if water got into my computer directly (I waited 24 hours just in case), but the power strip it was plugged into was under water. The wall that the power strip was plugged into, was also soaked to the point where it was pouring water from the sockets and outlets.
Well, now it's gone from crashing once or twice a week, to instantly crashing 3 times within 10 minutes. I've completely moved my computer into another room (that had no damage), and it plugged into a wall directly.
Should I submit it to insurance as damaged or does anyone have any suggestions? We already have a claim open with insurance for the damage to the house and I've already started a list of other damaged items to submit. We're already paying just over $2,000 USD in a deductible since the house has about $5,000-$8,000 damages before including furniture and what not, so we've already stared that.
Notes: Computer would freeze while doing homework or gaming, it wasn't picky. If I used the windows 10 feature to reinstall windows, it always resulted in an error. I purchased a ssd and have done a clean install of window with no luck in the past. Updating windows is out of the question as it freezes. Already done full checks for viruses 10x over. If using my wireless network adapter, it sometimes boots it off my computer, and won't reconnect without restarting my computer.
