    Hello tempest.

    I was using some dust remover aerosol to clean out the guts of my desktop, when all of a sudden a blast of liquid tetraflourethane erupted from the nozzle. I let go of the trigger, but there was still a split second of time for the liquid to get inside my computer. This stuff is flammable... and I'm afraid to turn it back on ;_;

    Should I be safe just turning it back on, or what?

    It evaporates fairly quickly, what you should be worrying about is the residue once it dries. if you turn on the comp. with no problems, most likely there will be no problems.

    You'll be fine, just hose it down! [​IMG]

    Give it a test run outside in a firesafe area and stress test it for an hour or so.

    Your computer should be fine. That liquid evaporates quickly and isn't conductive.
