Hi All.
Maryann's computer. For some time now the PSU fan has been noisy on startup & then quietening down after 15-20 mins. Yesterday we noticed a burning bakelite smell. It appeared to be coming from the PSU. The fan started quietly & up to speed. I took the side panel off & the CPU fan was running. Both fans are clean After an hour I felt the PSU case & it was cool.

Should I be worried? PSU is Exel350WCE. Thanks PJ

Hell yes.
Chnage it now before it dies totally.
Crap brand. Get a decent one.

This is just a case of physically replacing the old one & plugging everything back in as it was. Right? No programming nor permission from MS? PJ

Yep just replace and replug nothing to do with MS or anyone else, no changes to any settings required

You got it PJ - Only thing you may find is the PC runs better with a new PSU. :thumbs: Just make sure the extra cables are tied nicely up out of the way, makes it look a whole lot better and improves airflow through the PC when tidy - use plenty of Wire Ties.
