Just wondering how many people leave their pcs on over night/all the time or when theyre not at home.
Today, using my works pc(good qual, fairly newish - not been touched etc) suddenly the screen went off, then i could smell burning, then smoke was coming out of the side.
The psu(power supply unit) had set on fire.
Lukily I unplugged it quickly, took it downstairs before any damage was caused, but the psu is nackered lol.
but its made me think, I leave my pc on all the time at home, when im not there.. not any longer.
just a warning to all, doesnt take much for a fire hazard to occur
