  1. Run through the checklist at the top of the forum about boot problems first.
  2. IF you can smell, its bad. Look carefully at all components (motherboard, PSU, graphics card, ram, etc for signs of discoloration. Often you can see the damaged component. Also move the parts away from each other and you may be able to smell it.
