  1. Well I am no tech expert and made quite the mistake when I was cleaning my computer I was using a pressurized air can to clean the fan and squeazed too ligthly and and some droplets I think hit the motherboard.
    My computer still works and there hasn't been any crashes but it's taking slightly longer to turn on and off but that being said I have been using it a lot more since I cleaned it and that could be simple the more stuff you have on your computer the longer it takes to load sort of thing.
    Any thoughts this has been bugging me for a long time

    Your motherboard is just fine. The few droplets you speak of will not damage your motherboard or any other component. It's compressed air. It's meant to be used for electronics.

    If u're computer still works, u did not damage it bad, if u are running more software at the start that will deffinately slow slow down the boot. I do not think u hurt anything.
