  1. My motherboard is getting power (power light is on) but when I try to turn on the computer nothing happens. I also think there might be a burning smell...

    If you're sure that it's coming from the computer and not just because you haven't showered, it's probably because somethings fried. Remove all unnecessary components and try to boot. If it works, reinstall the components one-by-one until something fails.

    read the no post guide in the guides forum, also replace your PSU and ensure your motherboard isn't grounding to the case.
