    hi, recently i hooked up my new 42" hdtv to my pc via hdmi cable. about 2 days after i smelled a burning smell coming from my pc.i cant exactly tell where its coming from. i would suspect the power supply or video card. i shut my pc off for a day and then started it up again. still smelled the burning smell but not as bad. did the tv make my video card use too much power or overheat it? any ideas? specs

    ultra lsp 650w p/s low quality not recommended

    it output is less than a quality 550w

    you need to look inside the computer for signs of burning [discoloration]

    m/b
    video card
    ram slots
    power slots ect.
