Question about Computers & Internet
The dust could cause the burning smell, if the smell has an electrical smell then most likely the capacitors are leaking in the power supply and about to blow/explode.
Is the power supply come from a desktop computer? If so all ATX switch mode power supplies have standard mounting holes and power connectors.
Take out the old switch mode power supply and take it with you to your friendly computer shop and compare it with a new one. Make sure the wattage rating of the new switch mode power supply is the same or greater than the old switch mode power supply.
