Hello everyone, short summary of what happened, my PC got water damaged due to house fire. Trying to repair the poor guy. So one thing for sure was that the motherboard got fried so I replaced it with a new one, PSU works fine (tested myself, output volts are fine). I kept my old case hoping it still works, lo and behold it did not (kinda, it turned on 2 times but after that couldn't get it working again). The motherboard power indicator lights up including the GPU (So those guys are getting some power). So I still have hope!...Kinda. So I'm wondering what you guys think I should try first before going ahead and buying a new case. Here is what I did: Verified that the power sw cable and all the other ones where correctly plugged in to the motherboard. Checked all other cables connected to the case and motherboard are securely in place. Cables don't seem to be physically damaged. USB connection does seem rusted so wondering if the circuit board connecting to the power button on the front panel might rusted too? replacement needed maybe? Any opinions on what I should try are welcomed. Thanks everyone!:biggrin::feedback:
Firstly I'd like to say I'm noob on this forum so please forgive me, I've been having issues w/k95 Platinum over the last few hours when I knocked over a cup of water directly into the middle of my keyboard. Immediately I grabbed a towel and unplugged the keyboard. I removed the key caps and let it drain upside down on a towel for a couple of hours. Later on it the day when I went to assess the damage I plugged the keyboard in to find that all the keys were working with the exception of the space bar. Although I can get it to input with hard press and hold, it's very delayed and stops inputting after 3-5 spaces. Another thing I noticed was that all my G (macro keys) as well as 9 and 0 keys were constantly illuminated red. This isn't like other times where lights have froze on my keyboard, the lights constantly display red, but also can display other colors. So all the keys affected end up being tinted slightly red compared to the others around them. I have removed all of the key caps once more and have set the keyboard upside down on a towel to hopefully dry some more. Really not sure what to do, if you have any experience with these types of problems please let me know.
This sounds really stupid but I was using my K70 keyboard while drinking water and I guess I choked which made me spit a decent amount of water onto my keyboard. Stupidly, at the time, I didn't think it was that much so I proceded using the keyboard after a quick wipedown, however, after a couple hours, some of the rgb keys started to change color. Upon closer inspection, I found that the blue led wasn't working. I then decided to take apart my keyboard and let the exposed PCB dry out for a night under a fan, however, the next day, half of the keys still refused to turn blue. After reading some other similar issues, I think I'm gonna give it more time to dry and see if the problem fixes itself. If you guys have any suggestions on how to fix this issue I would REALLY appreciate it!
