ASUS Q534UX Laptop
GTX 950M 2GB GDDR5 VRAM
Core i7-7500U
16GB SDRAM
2TB SATA HDD + 512GB SATA3 SSD
Windows 10 Premium
BIOS version: 301 (from ASUS)

PROBLEM: Water damage to unknown components. Trying to determine codes/diagnosis for beeping motherboard. The motherboard beeps one "beep" at a time, constantly. There is no pattern of long and short beeps, and no end to the beeping (in other words, I am NOT getting 4 beeps). Simply, "beep, beep, beep, beep, beep, beep...." The ASUS codes I have found do NOT address "constant beeping." I'm wondering if this indicates the damage is to the motherboard or CPU itself and if that means this is now a total loss, given the CPU is integrated.

Additional Background: SPILLED WATER on the keyboard. Shut down the machine, opened it, removed battery, and let dry in desiccant for a week.
When powering up: fan turns on, keyboard backlight comes on, and motherboard beeps incessantly. Screen blank. ASUS refuses to tell me what the beeping indicates. While this is a great laptop, it's 3 years old, so I'm not going to spend any significant amount trying to fix it.
