GateCrusher420;3708188i would have to disagree with you. Coke is basically water so yeah its gonna conduct electrictiy.

That is a common misconception. Water (H20) will NOT conduct electricity, it is the salts that usually do not sure but coke probably will have quite a bit in. Still probably mobo is fried, but you'd need to look closely at everything and maybe swap something like the PSU just to make sure.

That would be your graphics card then... Ouchies... When you put it back in it better have been completely dry...

I really don't know, but all I can think of is running the card under water to destickify it and then let it sit for a long time to dry...

Also, I might check the contacts of the card, and make sure it's in all the way....

I really don't know much about this, all I can say is good luck... (and be weary taking my advice of course)
