Question about Northgate Computers & Internet
Turned on computer and sparks and smoke came out back of computer
Posted by Anonymous on
Please don't turn it back on. Unplug your computer from the wall and examine the wall socket for blackened or burned sections. It is likely that dust has caused a short in your computer. Sadly, most times this means that you are going to need a new computer or at the very least, some new parts. Take it to a reputable computer repair shop near you and have them test the power supply and other components to see what is salvageable of your computer. With any luck, your hard drive contents MAY have survived but there is no guarantee.
