Today there is some short circuit in our neighbour house and there is some small pop sound in my pc. Its just connected to power source but not turned on. I got some funky burnt smell. So I opened side panel but inside pc i am not getting any smell.
All of sudden lights on Motherboard went off and also router stopped working.
Dont know whats the issue. I had to go out of town for two days. I cannot stop thinking about my pc ;_;

What are the first steps that I should take? I will reach home in 2 days.

All my pc parts are bought from local vendor except SSD. Pc is 7 months old only. So all parts are under warranty. Will I get RMA for the PSU?
I have surge protector extension board and its working fine after this issue.

I am thinking of taking it to the vendor store. Are there any tricks or things that i should try before taking it to them?

Any help will be appreciated.

I'm not sure how a short circuit in your neighbor's house caused your PSU to blow, and it probably was just a coincidence. From your description, it sounds like you had a capacitor pop in your PSU.

That said, if it turns out to be your PSU and it's under warranty, I don't see why you wouldn't be able to RMA it.
