Ok so I was running CS1.6 last night and all of a sudden there was this burning smell and a spark sound and my 5 year old computer crashed. Now at startup itturns on but doesn't do anything. It used to beep once, it now doesn't, and it doesn't turn my monitor on neither.
I thought it might be my gfx card but I took it out and it didn't smell or anything. I can't see any noticble damage so I don't know what the problem could be . Although i know it's not my hdd as i took it to a friends place to get some files off it.
It's too old to be worth paying someone to repair it so i'm planning on building a new one but i would like this one to work in the meantime for uni. Also excuse the grammar/spelling i'm posting on my wii.
