Note. Sorry for the Bad English Im not really great with it

Yesterday while my brother is playing computer. My brother notice that our computer is smelling bad. We smell burn electricity?? i dont know the term. Then our computer suddenly Shutdown then my brother unplug it..(I dont know where the Smell Came from i just know it is inside the computer) after a few minutes I tried to open the computer. All the light Of the CPU and fans are working but the CPU is not booting neither it is NOT beeping. I tried to Look inside and look where the smell came from. but I cant find it.. can Some give me a solution for this..

I already check the memory tried to remove 1 memory. but the problem still persist.
(also it is impossible of overheating cause im always looking at the temperature and I am not overclocking my computer)


here are my specs
amd FX 4100 3.6 ghz
Palit GTS 450
msi 760GM-P23 (FX)
8 gb ram kingston 1333Mhz
1 LG dvd drive
1tb seagate drive
Cougar ST 500 W PSU


A few months ago before this happen. I already notice that some of my GAME is getting slow.
I can play Most Of the games SMOOTHLY this days. Like FarCry3, assassins creed 3, Nba 2k13, Battlefield 3, GTA IV DragonNest Etc,
I can play It Smoothly but Sometimes I Experience Sudden DROP of FPS in the middle of the game
example of these is while im PLaying NBA 2k13 MY FPS is From 50-60FPS then in DROPS to 15-20, then Goes Back to normal, then it happens again after a Few Seconds..

What is The Cause of these?? is IT PSU or my graphics Card.. motherboard??

NOW my computer is NOT Starting anymore ~_~ :( ( HElp pls ~_~ SOlutions plS


SORRY for the BAD ENGLISH GUYS...

bad smell and shutdowns sound like a bad PSU
Throttling sounds like potentially too high of temperatures for the cpu or video card.

The only way I can see these two issues being related is if you live in a high dust/dirt/cat-hair/etc. environment and the ambient temperatures are high (or a failed fan).
Try cleaning your computer out with compressed air at the very least.

You didn't mention any temperature info, that would be usefull.
Verify that all fans are spinning during normal operation also.
Inspect the psu for popped or blown caps, if visible (search google image on this).
Use your nose and try to identify where the smell is coming from exactly ...

I already check all the fans and it is all working also the Thermal paste of my CPU is just new. and temperature of my GPU is always between 40 to 48 deg celcius only. i dont know the temperature of my Processor but its fan is working and as I said the thermal paste is just new I already put some last month. so maybe it is also imposble of overheating? i dont know ~_~

Do you think it is the PSU?

You really should learn to read the temperatures of your components.
This is important.

Also GPUs tend to idle at much lower temperatures than full load (ie: gaming could easily see the temp more than double)

Search for some temperature monitoring software that will let you look at a time based graph.
Then fire up a game (or whatever software is causing you the stuttering), and log the temps as you reproduce the problem. This is the best way to eliminate variables. Otherwise we'll just be guessing.

Both GPU and CPU can throttle when they get hot, so monitor both.

Ive already tried to go on a Computer Shops. They already test my PC they already tried to change the motherboard the memory and the PSU but they were unable to and it is still the same. SO maybe it is the Processor?? they were unable to test the processor cause they dont have a tester of my processor ~_~

I don't understand exactly what you're saying, but bad "burning" smell coming from a pc and stability problems are usually assosciated with the PSU.
