I bought a new power supply and when i turned it on, it made a loud pop and now it doesn't turn on. I tried using an older power supply that works and i removed the graphics card and only have 1 stick of ram and the processor, and i turned it on it still didn't work. no lights, no fans running.
Is my motherboard fried?
oh yea also, I smelt a burning smell. couldn't really tell where it was from..
If the motherboard is won't turn on w/ a known working power supply there is a 95% chance it's dead. The only other likely scenario is that you have 2 dead power supplies. or that both of them died when attached to the same mobo. Both very unlikely.
