I was using my computer like normal, and my computer shut off and I heard a popping noise followed by a bad smell. It wouldn't turn on at all after this. I assumed it was the power supply. I then looked up ways to confirm if it was, and I tested it using the method of testing the fan with a paperclip. It seemed like it wasn't getting power. So I went out and bought a corsair cx750m psu.I just finished hooking it up and it's not working. With this one it at least shows a little sign of power, one of my fans comes on for about half of a second when I push the power button. Could it not have been the psu or do I have this hooked up wrong? What else could be wrong? Everything went together properly when I was plugging things in. This is the first time I've replaced my psu so I'm kind of clueless on this.

I'm on my phone currently, just say if you need more information and thanks.

IME...I've only heard popping one time since I've had a system...when a motherboard blew something.  I'd suspect that as being problematical with a new PSU having been acquired.

I've only had a PSU pop like that once.  I did the exact same thing as you, bought a new PSU and similar results.  I replaced the mobo only to discover the CPU and memory were bad as well.  Apparently when it popped, it basically fried everything, except the HDD.  I ended up buying all new parts and building a whole new PC.


Hopefully that's not the case for you.  It does sound like your motherboard has issues though.
