Hello, my cat recently sprayed urine on my computer. I found it the next morning and cleaned up all of it I could find with rubbing alcohol and left it to dry for 48 hours.
Unfortunately, the computer not turning back on. When I plug the computer in, the orange motherboard light turns on but nothing else, no fans, clicks, nor beeps. I don't have a multimeter or another board I could test my CPU or ram in. I am going to test my power supply in another computer to see if it has shorted out. My major question is: if the my motherboard shorted out/broke, what is the chance that the power supply/CPU and RAM are broken too? Also, is there anything else I could possible to do save my system?

It is an ECS brand motherboard with an i5 processor and DDR3 RAM

There is always the chance that the shorted mobo took another component with it. The only way to test that is to plug the components in another system.
