The card was damaged as soon as it got wet, so drying it out would not have made any difference. It will never work again so you'll have to buy another one.

✔ Best Answer
Where was the card when you spilled something on it? What did you spill on it?

If you spilled anything other than water on it, then you should have washed it off with warm water. You can still do that. No need to wait two months again. Dry it with a hair dryer.

Before you give up on the card, be sure you inserted it completely and firmly. Be sure you connect the TWO 6-pin power connectors.

Also clean the edge connectors with a pencil eraser - drinks can cause tarnish.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Presumably a new graphics card is an option if you wish to keep your present rig.
