Look for blown capacitors.

Smell your mobo.. if something is burned you can usually smell it, if it passes the smell test then it could also be the power supply. Either way you're probably going to end-up spending as much swapping things and still end up screwed, I'd probably look at this as a "mandatory upgrade" and move on..

its probably a failing psu. you burnt something out in the psu and now its unable to maintain power to the computer. If the case is closed, not much water is going to get in there, but it will get in through the rear of the psu. unless you have a fan or something on top the water could have gotten into. If anyone ever spills something on the comp, it should be take apart completely and dried out for a full day, not just an hour.
