Hello,
so the other day I whas playing a game, like I usually do on my computer, and then suddently my computer turned off, I tried to reboot but didn'T turn on. and then I smelled something burned, and knew it came out of my computer, so I tried checking inside my computer if something did burn, and chouldn't really find what burned or what whas wrong, so I took my graphic card out and tried to boot it without and it worked fine. does anyone know what the problem is? It doesn't turn on when my graphic card is pluged in.. did my graphic card burn? but why whould it cause it not to turn on at all?

the problem is, shouldn't my computer atleast turn on even if my graphic card is fried? has it something todo with my power supply? I had no problem playing with my graphic card untill it crashed and a burning smell came..

I'll re-iterate, what power supply do you have? What brand, and wattage? if it's an el-cheapo PSU, it probably had a rail die, and it took your GFX card with it.
