So my PC had been sitting in the car for a while and was pretty cold when I brought it inside. I was plugging in the power under the desk and the moment it made contact I heard what sounded like a loud pop noise from the case, and now it won't turn on, no sign of power whatsoever. Anybody know what would cause that? Any way to revive my PSU or can I assume it's dead if it doesn't work when it warms up? Tried a different power cord, no go.
Or more likely, damp inside.
Ive lost count of the number of PSU's ive opened up and seen hideous dry joints where the solder has retracted due to the cold and then cracked during rapid heating up.
So if you've still got it, open it up touch up the solder points where you can see a small ring around the outside of the joint and you've more then likely got yourself a spare PSU.
