Hello everybody. Ill just get to it. The other night i smelt a little something like burning. Didnt pay much attention. At that point my pc was still working. This morning i powerd on my pc and it turned on. Went to get some coffee and came back it was off. Tried to power it up again but now it wont turn on. The mobo power light is still on, so i dont know if its the psu. Now i feel like that smell that i smelt has something to do with it. No fans are spinning but the mobo seems to still be getting power(as per the mobo light) What can i do...i have important info i need to get at in there. Somebody please help

where is it? and do you open the case often? because dust can build up quickly on certian types of floors.
