The pc runs good, no sound or error. I did smell something burning, from the system-case, and I'm not sure where it came from. Is there any software that can detect any damage from all components: motherboard, videocard, memory, hard disks, cd-drivers, power supply?
I can't open pc-case due to garanty.

Hi okeee!

Download Speedfan, using the link in my signature (The download link is in the first line of the second paragraph), and install it. Once it's installed, run the program and post here the temperatures and voltages it shows. The information I want you to post is the stuff that is circled in the example picture I have attached.

Also, inside the program, click on the S.M.A.R.T. tab and then select your hard drive (or hard drives if you have more then one) from the pull down list and see how far the meters for FITNESS & PERFORMANCE are. Post back this information as well.

I ran speedfan and these are the settings:

+3.3 V 3,30 V
+5 V 4,84 V
+12 V 12,22 V

temp 1 36 C
temp 2 40 C
temp 3 26 C
hd 1 41 C
hd 2 38 C
temp 1 40 C

when using smart, the 3 HD settings indicate fitness and performance from 94% to 98%

All those appear normal. Last thing for you to check is your memory. Download Memtest86 from HERE. It is a diagnostic tool that runs extensive tests on the memory/ram in your computer.

If that comes up with no errors, then I wouldn't really worry about the burning smell you smelled before, because nothing is damaged because of it and if did damage anything you would notice it by now.

How should I test? Should I go to test configuration menu and chose 2) Test selection only?

I tested test 0-9, and there were no errors. Is it sure that there is no damage at all at the memory components?

Unless you are having problems with your computer, then I would not worry about anything being damaged. Besides, you have already checked/tested everything and they are all working fine, so I would just let it be.
