Question Spilled coffee on extension cord, pc doesn’t boot

Apr 28, 2020
As the title read, I accidentally spilled my coffecup and some of it went onto my power extension cord (not sure what it is called in english but i think you get the point) under the table next to my pc. After that I noticed that my pc had crashed, might be totally unrelated to this however (was playing valorant).

I removed the extension cord and replaced it and cleaned everything, however my pc didn’t boot properly after starting it again. I can hear it boot and fans are working and the motherboard displays the temperature, but i get no signal on my displays and my keyboard and mouse does not lit up like they always do when I boot. Anyone knows what might have happened?

Extremely thankful for all answers.
