the power supply smelled kinda burny but its been running for a while so i guess thats fine, the motherboard i might replace but i dont wana replace it and then have to replace the psu too, i dont have any spares to swap but i might be able to call a friend to take it to his friends shop. i dont want this to make my gaming pc out of commision for long so i was hopeing if there was an easy way the tell if the motherboard is dead?, i tried resetting the bios but the chipset fan dosent even come on so its either psu or motherboard, isnt there a paper clip trick to test if the psu is good? i cant remeber which holes it inserts to. also if the motherboard was fried where could i check for the capacitors im not sure which ones they are.
thanks for the help i need to order the parts some time today, must get gaming pc running
