Question about Gigabyte GA-G41M-ES2L Motherboard

1 Answer

After 3.5 weeks of operation, I looked at the screen after being away from the computer, and it was blank. I smelled burning resistor/electronics. Rebooting results in Windows XP displaying the logo and the sweeping progress bars sweep twice across the screen, which then goes blank, and he HD led indicates activity, but no windows boot. Is it the motherboard or the harddrive? I could smell burning component at the case rear fan, some minutes after the failure occurred. Bios screens seem to be displayed normally.

Hi,
I would check your power supply with a meter to see if that's the problem. If it checks out ok then it's probably the mobo. In rare instances when a power supply goes it takes the mobo with it.
Best of luck...Hank

most likely failure of module in the tv, most likely fuse, capacitor, something burn up, find the air vents smell the area your smelling something burn up smell, if you have every smell electronic stuff burning up you will understand what i mean you will never forget that smell.

Xantrex inverter/ charger smells like burning electrical


I would call or e-mail the manufacturer of the inverter. The dealer or dealers may know the issue but likely the manufacturer will be more help.
Some devices like an inverter will have a smell in the beginning, power supplies are like that. You said that the inverter didn't get hot but smell indicates something is hot.

blower resistor is common to burn causeing smell. check with dealer, there may be a campain on this problem. if not. replace resistor and harness (pig tail) and blower motor..

I got in my car this morning and I got about 1/2 block away from the house and I started to smell something. Then Smoke started to come out of the vents on the dash board. I have just replaced a unit that...


I assume you replaced the resistor. Often, the resistor failure is caused by the switch, and replacing the resistor will result in burning up another resistor. Recommend you look at your new resistor and if it's burning up, replace the switch. Let me know if you need any instructions.

For an explanation, please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6234839-doesn_t_heater_or_air_conditioner_blow . These are generic instructions.

After 5 mins the screen will go blank. turn monitor off and then on will work for 30 -60 sec and go blank


your back lights are going out. you need it repaired. it may be the lamps. invertors or power supply. you need to look at the power supply for damaged electronics, leaking crown capacitors. blown fuses and resistors. you need to replace them to make it work

Heater in 2001 kia spectra stoped working


The burning smell is most likely an issue with the blower motor. These small motors have a hard life and the windings can lose the insulation and short out, hence the burning smell. Another problem can arise if the air intake has filled with leaves and other matter which can be ignited by the fan speed resistor creating the smoke. As this matter rots down, it creates chemicals which can erode the insulation on the motor and cause burning and the eventual failure of the motor. The fan speed resistor is a bank of wirewound or solid state resistors wired across the fan motor which give the individual fan speeds. If these fail then you would lose the fan as well. Search out the fan housing as the resistor is usually fitted into this housing to keep it cool. NEVER turn the fan on if this resistor is out of the housing as it WILL get hot and It can cause a nasty burn..the resistor can have upto 7 wires plugged into it but as to it's exact location, that you will have to find on your own..

TLX-03210B blanks out, audio works, with some smoke as well


Open the cover and look for the burned componet.Usually it must be a condenser. Rarely a resistor.If it is a condenser just replace it with the similar one. Note the polarity while replacing. If it is resistor need to check the associated circuit for over load. If you not sound in electronics reffer to an expert.

My hcp4752 started smelling hot now the colors are


It looks like you have a problem on your convergence panel. Look for burned resistors near the STK-* IC's. One or more of the STK-* IC's may be bad. When the resistors get hot they smell but so do the IC's. You can replace the bad parts or you should be able to replace the entire panel then go thru a convergence alignment.

Electrical burning smell in house


Mhenn, It is my guess that the 'electrical burning' smell is from your heating system. Since there is no smoke and the walls are not warm.... then there is no real problem. The smell maybe just dust has collected in the duct work that is burning off the central heating systems electrical heat strips. If you have electrical heat strips then that may be the problem. If you have a central gas heat system, it may be the same type problem. Hope this helps you. Henry
