Hi,
I tried turning on my PC this morning and it turned itself off within a min followed by a burnt smell.. I opened up the case.. i could not see anything.. plugged it back in .. I could see the PSU light being on .. soon as I plugged in.. tried pressing the on button again.. PSU light went off and slight burnt smell again..

Not sure whats happening .. any help would be appreciated!

It's mostly caused by a PSU being faulty. Please don't try turning it on with the same PSU as it may cause power surge to other parts of your PC. Please plug in a new PSU to make sure it's the case.
