I have a problem with my desktop motherboard, I cannot be able to switch it on after I have smells the smokes in my room. I have looked on the motherboard which it have went off itself and I was worried what it have happened to them. I have switched back on as it was working fine for few mins and then it went off again. I have smells another smoke and I have switched off immediately without taking any notice.
I have left it off for a while and switched it back on. It was working fine without have any problems before I took my final chance and that was it. The motherboard went off again and it will never switch it back on again, I have tried to figured out where the problem was coming from but I couldn't figure out until today.
I have tested the battery and the power supply, all of them are working fine. I have smells around on the board and I couldn't find out where the problem has been coming from. I have disconnected the hardware and cables from the motherboard, so when I switch it on, the cpu fans will start to spins a little bit as half way but it will stop spinning after I have switched on. I am suspected that if the smokes has been coming from the capacitors which they might have been blown, but I am not 100% sure.
Here's the pictures of the capacitors of the motherboard:
If you believes that you can see any of the capacitors has been blown, I would like you to show me the pictures with red circles where you can see the blown capacitors and I will be happy to replace them without have to buy a new board, otherwise if you couldn't see the capacitors has been blown then it looks like to me that the motherboard is dead and I would have to buy a new one which I am really hope not
In this case, I believes the motherboard is fine because when I switch it on, I can see the cpu fans will spins a little bit before it stop spinning again. I know that the motherboard is working but they won't start to boots because there is not enough power to get in the board which is probably why it is not working. I believes that the capacitors are blown. There shouldn't be a problem for me because I can fix it.
I has been using the motherboard for 7 years which it was working great. This is the best one I have ever have and I never has any problems, so I would be sad that if the motherboard is dead.
Any advice would be much appreciate.
Thanks in advance
