So I was just playing gta on my rig.

I heard 2 crackles and everything shut down. I tried to turn on my pc, but no avail. I spelt plastic burning and I called my mom and asked her if she smelt it too, she said she did too. So I unhooked everything and let it sit for a while and now my motherboard doesn't light up even with the power cable plugged in. Is my psu gone?



My specs:


I7 960
12gb corsair ram
Dual 5870
Evga x58 classified 3-way sli
1tb caviar black
1050w ultra x4 psu
Haf 932 case

Any help would be appreciated

I would try swapping in a known working PSU.

I would agree with the PSU diagnosis.

Hopefully it didn't take out any of the other components with it.

PSU most likely. But if u can disassamble the componenets, you would probably see the plastic part that burned. If you dont see it, its probably becouse its inside the PSU.

Good luck!
