My computer died.

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
sad-smile Yesterday i was converting some video files and playing defcon at the same time. then all of the sudden my pc started smelling like burnt hair and shut off and it wont turn back on. i thought it was the power supply so i put a diffrrent one in and still no luck. but if i unplug the cpu 4pin connector and turn it on all my fans spin but i dosent turn on. could i have killed my cpu and my motherboard or just my cpu?

in the meen time i have to use a eee pc or a acer from 1998 that barley runs star craft.

I'm sure its unlikely the CPU will be toast.
I would blame the PSU first but you've already tried that
I would put next bet being the motherboard, what PSU did you test with, are you sure that one works.

Did you detect the oder from inside the PS?
Have you inspected the MB for any burnt spots both top and bottom and possible any Caps that are ballooned or popped and leaking.

Also, check to see that the MB battery has at least 3v in it.
