Question about Computers & Internet
If your desktop computer went bang from the back of the computer and the burnt smell comes from the fan grill of the power supply then the switch mode power supply definitely failed. The bang and burning smell was probably one or more of the capacitors that has exploded inside the power supply.
You can replace the switch mode power supply, make sure you purchase one that has the same total wattage or higher wattage.
There is a chance that when the power supply failed it may have caused a voltage spike that could have damaged some other components. You won't know until you replace the faulty power supply.
