So with the old PSU your system works fine?

Everything gets power, yeah. I didn't go much further with the experiment due to the smell though.

So, if anyone can see anything from the pictures... they're not the best quality, but, I can't see anything in them.

Well, regardless. I'm getting a new PSU. I'm wondering if I should just go ahead with a new motherboard as well, due to the smell, or - how likely is it that such things dissipate? I imagine if merely being -on- causes the smell, then something is likely destroyed and that can't be good for whatever is. Looking at the thermal paste, does anyone suppose that could be causing it? Also, I was wondering if perhaps the underside of the mobo or maybe underneath the 'Ultra durable' and 'Gigabyte' heatsinks there may be something. I'm not sure offhand what they're covering - the L caches?

Well, thanks for the help so far. Anyway, got a new PSU. I was able to boot to Windows. No programs would open, some sort of compatibility error, and then countless blue screens. Ubuntu loaded but refused to acknowledge it had an ethernet connection. System restore blue screens. My CD drive would not spin disks properly so I swapped in another and am attempting a restore via CD; the first restore crashed due to a memory_management blue screen. Never seen that one before. Anyway, I am not sure what this can all be summed up to mean. I'm attempting the disk route, like I said. I may switch my HDD into a friend's PC to test it, but .. my RAM worked flawlessly in his build, as well as my bideo card, so I would guess it's safe to rule them out. I can't tell about the processor with such limited functionality.

Anyway, thoughts on the happenings/blue screens?

Aaand I got about thirty percent through a disk install to a blue screen.

'Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any windows updates you might need.' etc.

I have no idea where to go from here.. help?

sounds like a hard drive issue to me..no expert though but if all your components are working and you get blue screens maybe it has bad sectors or something

If I can isolate this as the HDD and not the motherboard/both, I'll be happy. I don't know how to tell with just this information.

Everything you've listed that has happened with the NEW power supply points towards toasted motherboard.

Yes, this is all with the new PSU. I am hopefully going to get my friend's HDD in there soon to be sure, or put my HDD in his computer. I don't think either test is superior compared to the other.
