hey guys,
this happened today to my pc
i was working on it as usual, and then suddenly, the whole thing just turned off, and i couldnt hear the fan's hum or anything at all
what was weird is that, the green power light was still on, but nothing else was working.
i turned off the entire computer and restarted it, it started up for about 5 seconds and then it just turned off completely again, and this time the power light was not on.
what is also weird, i could smell something strange coming from the back of the computer, kind of like something burning ( i know its not good...)

the third time i hit the power button, nothing happened. its just stopped working!!!
i think its my power supply

any ideas what may be wrong?

edit: forgot to add: i looked at the fans in the computer, when i hit the power button, nothing happens, sometimes they move a little, like 30 degrees or so and then just stop.

Hi shinakuma9...

Sounds like you need a new power supply to me, too. :)
