Did the PSU blow?

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
The story is, I was video processing when my computer suddenly turned off. I also smelled smoke. When I try to turn it on, it stays on for a split second before shutting off, but the mobo idle light is on. When I bypass the PSU with a paper clip, it does not turn on. I tried my friend's PSU, with the same result. Did I ruin my PSU, CPU, both, or could it be something else? I was running my PC at 1.4v btw... and it was fine till this happened.

I know the PSU is blown, but my comp did not turn on using my friends PSU. Is there a small possibility that the BIOS chip blew too?

hard to say but I think it might have taken out your mobo as well. The only way to check whats ruined is test the parts in another pc

Yeah... Kind of easier said than done though, seeing how I'm pretty much the only kid in town with anything at this level. If it took my mobo, wouldn't the idle light fail to turn on? I'm trying to weed out possibilities so I don't have to make a lot of returns.

Edit: To anyone that knows, does the pc still power on with the cpu removed?

I remember reading somewhere that it doesn't. You need the CPU to get into the BIOS at least

So it would immediately shut off?
