Hi,

This morning I accidentally plugged my PC into a wall socket that I usually use to turn my monitor on. I switched the PC on, but 2 seconds later it restarted 3 times very quickly, then there was a burning smell so I immediately unplugged and switched everything off.

After this happened I tried to switch the PC on with 3 other different wall sockets a few minutes later and it just turned on normally without any issues or burning smells, which leads me to believe that the wall socket was the issue.

Everything is working perfectly fine and I didn't have any issues, yet... However, is it possible that my PSU / PC is now damaged because of this? I'm really worried :'(

Thanks :) !

should have blown a circuit breaker.....
look at the outlet very closely... you should see melted plastic and some black,,,,,,, plug something else in there and move it wround.... maby just a cord with nothing hooked up...
