About an hour ago, some loud sparks and loud popping sounds came from my PC. I wasn't able to see clearly which part of the PC it was coming from. It lasted about 3 seconds and now it won't turn on. There was a burning smell and under examination, nothing appears to be burnt. Any help please?

I'd look at the power supply first.  Try one from another computer.

Unlikely. They all monitor and regulate their power input independently, AFAIK, but I'm talking out of my ass.  Smiley

It's an AZZA Dynamo 850W. I'm hoping to get a replacement since it's within the 2 year warranty. While I didn't intentionally do anything to harm it, should there be some things I shouldn't mention when asking for a replacement?
