Computer Water Damage

I spilled water on my desk and some of it dripped onto my computer and now it won't turn on. When I press the power button, the fan LEDs turn on for a split second and then turn off. What could this be? Mobo? Power supply? I dried off as much as I could from the inside, and I'm hoping everything will be fine once it fully dries, but I'm not sure what the extent of the damage could be.

EDIT: Just took out the graphics card and the computer starts now. That sucks since the graphics card is my most expensive part. Anyone have any ideas on how to dry/salvage it?

Check the pci slot on mobo as well. Make sure no moisture is in there

Rice trick on the gpu. Careful no grains get stuck in heatsink/fan. Perhaps take the hs/fan assembly off first. If you do have thermal paste handy. Keep mobo upside down over a fan over night. See if it helps.

There's no way water got into the card. The water dripped in from the top of the case onto the exposed mobo of the card, which is bad, but the fan was on the other side so I don't believe it got inside.

I'm pretty sure this card is fucked, so looks like I'm on the market for a new one. I had the RX 480, but that shit is like $400+ everywhere I look. Anyone have recommendations for a similar card under $300?

NT kinda did Ultraviolet
Ultraviolet shouted: I always thought it was kind of messed up to impersonate someone without their permission, but I guess that's artistic license for you. When you get into the realm of using AI to do it.. it seems even worse to me, but I'm not sure why

Zoan -- and tbh no, this is exactly the type of thing ai should be used for. Now if you were monetizing it, I would say you should emohasize you used ai for the voicelines

Oh_Man -- but if i want to make a LOTR map and use AI generation to give aragorn etc more voice lines am I now suddenly crossing a line? wen did we get so snowflakey

Ultraviolet -- NudeRaider
NudeRaider shouted: Ultraviolet absolutely. You can count me among those folks. ;) But I understand it. It's a silly name only kids find funny. However to know that and still own it that would be the manliest move in my eyes.
Yeah, I can appreciate that perspective. I've used so many handles over the years, I think I had less attachment to NerdyTerdy than some of the folks here. Just never changed my name much here cause it was expensive :P I still kind of like the NT name, but definitely prefer Ultraviolet. I think UV has been my handle for around half my life at this point O.o

NudeRaider -- So the question is will we as a society become resilient against these forms of attacks? Either by detecting or accepting? Find new ways to deal with it? I guess we will have to wait and see.

"social media" is imo a much better example for "society was not ready for it". We haven't seen yet where AI will lead us. It has a lot of potential for good, but then again, so had social media. For now the only potential for abuse in AI that I see is in forgery of various kinds.

Oh_Man shouted: guys what are your thoughts on AI voice cloning vs someone doing impressions. why is one moral and the other immoral? or do you think both are fair game
For me it's the intent that make the difference, not the method. If you copy someone for profit or harm, then that's immoral. If your goal is satire then all bets are off. I think people are just afraid to be deceived because AI removes skill from the equation and painting AI usage as immoral is their weak attempt to defend against it.
