I have a laptop which gave a small "plof" sound, after that the laptop was totally dead. The smell is like ozone, the same when a power-supply from a desktop computer stops working. This is new to me when it's on a laptop.
When I open the laptop, there is a strong a ozone smell from the fan.
There is a cooling block on the processor with a copper cooling element, which has an exhaust on left right of the laptop.
Can it be that the cooling fan just broken which produces that smell or can it be something else?
I'm 90% sure it's not the harddisk, because the smell is not on that side of the laptop.
