My computer made a loud popping noise and wont turn on

My computer made a loud popping noise which i presumed came from my fractal style 750 watt power supply. However before, no funky smell came from it and also im worried to rotate on my computer system.. what execute i carry out next?

That"s generally a sign that a capacitor blew. Open up your computer and also examine your motherboard. Particularly the capacitors. If whatever is visually fine, then it"s most likely the PSU that blew.

You watching: My computer made a loud popping noise and wont turn on

 

Remove your PSU and also look inside it by looking via the grill. If it were me, I would certainly open up the PSU for a much better visual inspection, but I understand what I am doing as soon as it pertains to opening them up. If you"re a novice at every one of this type of stuff, then I wouldn"t hazard opening up the unit, as imcorrect handling is dangerous.

 

What"s the exact version of the PSU?

Never said it was just capacitors. But commonly, I discover that a capacitor typically pops. Of course, if deserve to be various other points. In my suffer, it’s usually among the capacitors.

 

I execute understand there’s a bunch of parts in a PSU. Bridge rectifiers, transformers, and so on etc.

They CAN pop. Just not commonly. Depends on the method they fail. Usually just fizzle.

 

Generally once a PSU goes *BANG!!!!* it"s bereason a MOSFET blew up.
