A couple months ago, I noticed a burning smell coming from my baby. I immediately shut down, opened it up, and I think
it was coming from the PSU, but not completely sure. There was a good deal of dust, so I cleaned it out with some dust-off. A month or two went by, and did not smell burning again. Then it came back last week... couldn't tell where the smell was coming from because it disappeared so quickly after I opened the case. I cleaned it out again, and been fine now.
I can only guess that the smell will come back in the near future.
Can the burning smell be coming from dust? My computer is in a very inaccessible spot, but it's the only spot I can fit it in my small dorm room. Basically, it's a pain to get at and I don't clean it out very often.
The grill on the PSU is facing up, so I thought maybe some dust just fell in there or something?
Any ideas? Burning smell can never be a good thing
