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.

Can a dryer heating element smoke if dryer is not running?


Something fried and is shorted. Unplug this unit right away. There are a few sensors on this that could have overheated as they failed causing this smoke and smell, but UNPLUG UNIT!!! Then look at what has 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.

Smoking pc part 2


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.

I don't want to sound mean or condescending but if you're good enough to repair what is wrong with that monitor you wouldn't be asking someone in here how to fix it. You just don't go pick up a soldering iron and start fusing parts in a monitor if you even find the parts at the local Radio Shack. If you smelled smoke and it doesn't come back on it's fried.

Dell 17" monitor is not turning on.


1. Check the cable with the blue connector. Make sure it's plugged well to the back of the computer.

2. CHeck the light on the CPU's power button. If it's solid green, press the numlock key on the keyboard. Tell me, if the numlock light on the keyboard turned off or on. You can press it again if you didnt catch anything.

3. If there are no lights on the keyboard or the computer when you turn it on, the computer is the problem.

Just post here what lights are present or what happens when you press the numlock key.

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.
