Side note:
When the air is released it makes the can very cold....frozen, when this happens you must let the can rest and come back to a warmer state. Having two or more cans speeds the cleaning process and when empty just dispose in a proper fashion.
Well I just cleaned the inside of my computer, after that was done , I went to power on , and the same god dam problem happened. All I can think of at this point is it's my monitor.

I will post some pictures before I started the Job. I just don't understand what the problem can be. I am beyond confused at this point, do you think it's the tower that's wrecked?

Did you clean out all the open slots as I mentioned? I would remove the ram sticks and blast those slots and lightly wipe the copper ram pins with a very damp cloth and let them dry completely before re-inserting. The issue still could be elsewhere but worth a try. Did you blow out the PSU as well?

Here is after I cleaned it, I didn't removed the front and other side though . Would you suggest I remove those sides?
