For sure, especially if you smelled smoke. Although it could b one of the cards or even power supply. You'll have to open it up to see for sure.

The cooling fan for the interior of the cpu case froze up and now the computer will not boot up. I replaced the fan but the computer will still not boot. I can see the lights on the front of the unit come...


It's the power supply, the cd drive door will open in all cases if it has power - 12 volts to be more precise. Simple test: take the cd unit and the power supply out of the case of the pc, connect them  and start the PSU (connect the green wire to a black one) - if the door opens now it means that there's a big short on the motherboard, if not the PSU is fried.

Computers won't turn all the way on


If the cpu were damaged, you would still get something at boot.

Smell your power supply? Do you smell arcing or burning. If so, it may be your power supply. You can get a power supply tester for about $20. The power supply has several different voltages that it supplies. So, the system might seem to be on but not really.

Depending on the size of your system, you can get a power supply for between $20 and $125.

I am willing to bet that it is the power supply. A cheap power supply can easily burn out.

Absolutely. I'm assuming since you put it together you can also take it apart. (and yes, sorry to say i'm the one who told you it was fried.)

Be sure when you pull off the CPU fan that you disconnect if from the motherboard, then give it a very (very, VERY - just to loosen up the thermal paste) gentle twist back and forth to loosen it up, then lift it off.

Unfortunately i think you were using the original FX64 CPU in a socket 940 mobo, so you will have a hard time finding a new mobo (like, hard as in impossible). The good news is....eBay..... there's a bunch of your exact mobo on there.

good luck, and beat your intern/assistant or whatever about the face and neck for attempting to make an upgrade to your computer.

Smoke smell from pc after ram change


yep, your mobo is fried, DDR2 and DDR do not share quite the same pin payout. Toasty Mobo, but on the plus side now you'll be able to buy one that has better driver support.

And kudos for hiring an assistant who shoehorned RAM into a slot it did not fit in and firing it up.

Hi there,

First of all does your power supply smell of burning?.... if so than you need a new power supply, otherwise you may have blown you motherboard which may include your cpu.

Please let me know what you find and I may be able to help you.

Pc Seems to be dead wont load bios post moust doesnt work or keyboard or monitor


I have the same problem, the CPU fan spins, keyboard lights blink, no start up screen, or bios.
But, when I push a few times on the pc reset button, then the CPU fan is becoming still, the keyboard light are out and I can start the computer again in a normal way.
Can this one be a temporally solution for you too? Do you have any suggestion about?
I guess it can be an electricity dysfunction of a wrong fixed cable.

Unfortunately it sounds like the processor fried. These are very prone to heat degradation.

Motherboard or CPU dead?


The burning smell (if it was a fishy type smell) may have come from the mobo psu 21 pin connector where you plug in the psu. The connection may not work properly because of melted plastic deposits which may be why you are unable to turn it off at the switch. Just check the old psu connector for signs of rusting pins and mis-shaped connector. If you have a fairly recent mobo and processor ensure that the power supply doesnt need the power supply from the psu, unlike some processors where the power is taken from the ZIF mobo socket.
