...just knocked an almost empty bottle of beer over on my desk...my PC which happens to be on it's side, workings open to the world alongside the desk...can we see where this is going yet?
Yes, you guessed it, no longer than it took to grab the bottle and the sound went "fzzzt-pop" and the screens on my monitors went blank...beer in the PC
I hit the power switch pretty quickly and went and got a good strong light to survey the damage. A few drops and a small puddle greeted my eyes....erk!
A quick removal and insepction of the graphics card (brand new HD 5770) showed a couple of small spots so I carefully used a bit of tissue to absorb them, give them a good blast with the compressed air and set it on top of the radiator. I then repeat the process with the motherboard, but use a 250w lamp to dry any residue.
Less than 10 minutes after the fateful accident I power up expecting the worse...but it seems that the Gods must have been smiling on me as here I am posting on here using it now.
Time to sort a new case out I think, one that can accomodate my CPU cooler.
