    anything wrong with the computer would smell like melted plastic burning so i say look at the cat or dog, they probably pissed on it and heating it up makes it reek

    i second that. I had someone come in to my job and ask me about his computer, and i just pump gas at a gas station, lol. He took his pc with him, it was a rosewell PSU. i told him to take it to the guy he bough it from(some local computer build guy) and demand he fix the pc.

    I already figured out that it was the PSU. For now there's a spare PSU in there but I want to get a "reliable PSU" in there soon. Do you recommend one around $50-$60?
