For about 4 months, maybe even more my PC has been opening on the BIOS screen instead of Win10s but i didnt mind since all i had to do was press F1 and then Discard changes and exit to start the PC (Im saying this because it might be relevant). A couple of days ago my PC just didnt turn on, i had no problems the night before but that morning it wouldn't turn on so i tested the cable on other things and the electric current, neither were the problem, didn't know what else to do so i pressed the red switch on the back of my PC from 230 to 115, then i connected the cable and as soon as i did that it exploded, i imagine it was the power supply and smells like burnt plastic, i was wondering if some of you could answer these questions please:
- I know that i have to change the power supply, should i get any power supply or is there more to it? My specs are as i remember i5, GTX 1650, 16 gb ram and i think a H81M asus motherboard but im not sure.
- Even if i change the power supply, was that the problem? My PC wasn't working before the power supply exploded, what else could it have been?
- Why did it explode after i changed that switch? what does it do?
- Is it possible that the mother board or other pieces are dead now? did my ram, graphic card, etc survive?
