Default Re: Smoking Motherboard

The fact you got a screen at all is nothing short of incredible...

When you say "shine some light" on the situation, do you mean as to what might have caused this? It's a bit difficult to say without more info, but right away I would assume something insane happened to your PSU and fried it. Gonna need more testing of the mobo to make sure it wasn't fried as well, but most of the time it wouldn't initialize if it was burned up like that, so that's a good sign.

What are you running in this machine? And what brand was the PSU? Since you'll need to replace it we can advise a decent one for you to buy.
