Question about Dell Vostro 220 Desktop Computer
The burn out is as a result of a higher voltage of 220 than the 115 wwhich the system was on as at the time of connection to the power supply. The user is in a country with the 220v but bought the system from the us with a 115v and did not switch over before connecting it to power supply. There was a pop sound and a burnt smell. User wants to know if the powe supply can be fixed as there are now available replacement parts in the country of use currently.

You can try replacing the fuse in the power supply if it has one. Most have a permanent circuit breaker that once tripped, the power supply is no more. If you can change the fuse, there's a 90% chance it still won't work since there was a burnt oder, which indicates the fuse didn't blow fast enough to prevent more damage, like the motherboard.
