Thumbs up comptuer died what caused it?

My computer recently died and i am unsure why. I got that infamous burnt diode smell and immediately replaced my psu with a thermeltake toughpower 850 watt psu. I've recoonect the plugs and turned it on but it only turns on about 2 seconds. Upon inspection i notice that my gfx card and cpu smell as well. Is there a possibility that they got fried as well as the psu? The capacitors havn't bulged the only noticable thing is the smell please help thanks.

Well, it sounds like it's fried, like you said. I would guess it is the PSU but who knows. The burning smell also leads me to believe that it is fried.

Sorry to hear this, but you will need to test each component to see whats bad and whats not.
