What is the name of this red circled thing? Why it got burned when I powered on?
I have bought a PC a month ago and it often (1 minute or less) automatically turns off.
Took to the store, they told me it is the "processor". I left the PC there for maintenance and after one month (today) I got the PC back.
When I powered on, went on BIOS, looked at the settings, fixed the clock. Suddenly PC powered off. When I pressed to power on again, I saw a "flame" from the hole of the cooler. I took out of the plug and opened the PC. Some little component was burned and melted (yes). But I don't know what is it. A transistor maybe. You can see what is it on the picture below.
So, what is the name? Is it really a transistor? Why did this thing get burnt? Is it possible that everything is gone too?
I guess it is not processor related. The power supply is the LPZ12-50 500W 12V with automatic 110 or 220 voltage detector
The model of the mobo: Intel dh61crbr
Here is the real photo, sorry for the delay, I was waiting for the battery of camera charge.
