Computer won't turn on

Hello, I was playing FF14 on my computer, suddenly it shuts down and won't power back on. I unplugged the power cord and tries to restart it again with the case opened. I can see the PSU light and the back fan go on for like 0.2 seconds, then everything goes back to silence.
It also smelled funny... Do you guys think it's burnt? PSU or mobo?

Bad power supply, I can pretty much guarantee it.

Physically check on the motherboard for any exploded capacitors just in case, but if you don't see anything out of the ordinary, it's a bad PSU.
