Take the card out and check it further. Clean it with isopropyl alcohol. Pull the covers/fan shrouds off if you have to.

While its out (and the power is still off - der) clean anything else up you can but CAREFULLY.

The re-assemble. Leave it open in front of a fan for a day. Then try it out again.

Hi TurboEnzo
I would suggest you remove the card and check all components for any other signs of spillage under good lighting ,
whilst you have the card out you should clean it with gently with a lint free cloth and isopropyl alcohol
