Hello , in this morning , my pc suddenly stopped and started to smell as something got burnt. It doesn't start but when i opened it i saw that for 2 seconds the vents were still working and then stopped . Do you know what component could be broken ?

Can you see any signs of burning on the motherboard?

You may be lucky then and its just the PSU, the only way to tell is by substitution

That depends on what graphics card you have installed.
