My story: my PC freezes daily and a weird smell comes from the power supply. I replaced the power supply. The PC worked well for about 1 hour then shutdown automatically and I couldn't restart it.
The power supply is dead, the motherboard led won't light up. I tried to start power supply without pc(green wired + black wire) but nothing.
Then I put back my old power supply and the PC started, after 1 hour it shutdown again and I can't start it. When I remove the GPU the PC starts with black screen obviously, but not when starting with the GPU. Now the motherboard led lights up.
Where is the problem ? Any solution? why new power supply dead? Thanks for the answers.:(
