last few days electrical burning smell coming from computer last night it went with a bang, change power supply unit today and got back up and running but had to go out, only gone half hour, when arrived back smell of burning again any ideas where to go from here would be great.
When the first PSU popped, a lot of stinky resinous and doubtless poisonous aerosol was unleashed with the PC.
You were out for a while, and normal warming of the components released some of this gunge into the room. When you came back having breathed fresh air, your nose detected what was by then a smell which was old news and will slowly disappear in use.
And the pessimist? Bad luck, but either this PSU is faulty and is frying too, or something is drawing enough current fom the PSU to heat up untill ......
sorry only just replying to your question, just cleared kids to bed. I think its big enough, it is 550w the one i took out was only 250w. At the moment sat with case open all seems ok can`t say i can smell anything wondering if Diemmess could be right with is optimist paragraph? hope so.
