Good day everyone,im certainly not having one myself.there was a power fluctuation and suddenly i heard a pop sound,and smoke started to rise from the vents then the computer went completely off.pushing the power and reset button does nothing.please what is wrong and what do i do???
Depends. A lot of times when a PSU goes it will send a high level of voltage out. Usually it takes out caps on a motherboard, sometimes a CPU or GPU. It is possible to damage a hard drive as well. Chances are pretty good that it'll be readable still although there is still a chance of an issue.
changing the psu is just the first step, you may get lucky and it may not have damaged any of the other parts or it may have,
there is this test you can do on your psu http://www.corsair.com/en/blog/testing-your-corsair-pow... (doesn't need to be corsair psu)
even if this fails and you get a new psu there is no guarentee that the motherboard or cpu or hdd is not damaged too but you have to start somewhere,
were you plugged into a surge protector? I strongly recommend buying one if not
