Hi everyone, I'm so glad I found this forum! My son has an almost 2 year old Dell Desktop Inspiron 3656. Yesterday he noticed a burning smell coming from the tower. I unplugged everything from it after shutting it down and smelled the odor coming from the power supply area. We kept it off a bit and set it in a different area, more ventilated an it again had this strong odor like something was burning. I opened the case today and had a look around. The smell is definitely coming from the power supply area. I took 2 photos to show you. One photo appears to show a yellowish mark which appears to be from too much heat.
I'm looking for confirmation of what I believe the problem is before I go to Dell and order anything or if this could possibly be something else. Thanks in advance!
