  1. so today i went on my computer and when i booted it i heard this sound which sounded like an explosion. then i went and cleaned the fan. then i try to turn on the computer but it didnt turn on. do you think its the power supply or the motherboard, or what you think is the problem

    You could take a look at the motherboard to see if there are any burn marks anywhere or perhaps a capacitor exploded.

    If you are not getting any power to anything, it could be the PSU too. Do you have access to another for testing purposes?
