Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
I spilled some water onto the pc a couple days ago, I made sure to unplug it and let it dry but now when I turn it on it clearly has power but makes 4 red beeps and I’ve tried RAM removal, replacing the ram, cleaning it and checking for any damage but I see nothing serious or any damage at all and it’s getting tiring to figure out what is wrong with it.

Sorry to hear this has happened. Liquids and electronics don't play well together.
Water will short components down to the MB even if the PC is off and plugged into a active power source. A four beep BIOS error code suggests you have a power failure condition.
This site (Link) lists possible fixes when a PC has a four beep BIOS POST error.
The following is an excerpt from the above site:
Power button LED blinks 4 times with 4 beeps
