Hello,
I accidently spilled wine on my motherboard asus p7p55d-e pro whiled turned on.. i turned it off as fast as i could from the power plug and left it for around 12hours to dry.. After that i tried to turn it on but no success.. so i i disassembled my computer and i cleaned my mb carefully with pure alcohol.. i cleared as much as i can.. i spilled pure alcohol on the motherboard and i put it to dry in the oven for 30mins on 50*C to speed up the process. After i was sure that it was dry i'v put it back and plugged the cables from the power supply - but no success..
The green led lamb is lid .. if i switch the jumper "OV DRAM" that LED lamb is lid as well.. but no matter what i try the computer wont give a sign that is turning on... dead end..
I tried reseting the bios, i pulled the battery and i had hold the power button for more than 30sec and than put back the battery plug the power and try again.. no success as well.

here are the pictures of my motherboard:
!Where i marked it with red is where i spilled the wine

Sounds like you have a short :(  If that is the case you're probably SoL. There's really no other simple troubleshooting that I know of besides cleaning & drying it. You can examine the motherboard for blown capacitors or other components. If you find one, you can get a replacement and solder it in...Beyond that, you'd need to test each component and socket in the southbridge with a multimeter.

In the future though, if anything like this ever happens again (god forbid), don't try to turn it back on until you've cleaned it with 90%+ alcohol and let it dry. Never try to turn a machine on with any substance on the components (dust notwithstanding).

The equipment you'll need if you don't already have it can cost upwards of $75 or so. Even if you do, there's a chance that it's one of the internal traces that's blown, in which case there's literally nothing you can do about it. Still, if you've no other choice,

I'd advise finding a computer repair shop that can do motherboard component level repair (i.e. not geeksquad)
