Okay, i will do that tonight :). There was some kind of gunk on one of the connectors in my psu but i couldnt see where it had come from and it didnt appear to have leaked out from anything.
When looking at my motherboard would it be obvious if something had gone wrong? I.e something burnt out/exploded etc ? This is really the first time ive opened up a computer so i dont really know what im looking for minus the obvious burnouts.
