RE: No power, burning smell

I have an inspiron 3847. The burning smell was coming from around where the processer is located and everywhere was fine.

As the power supply is next to processor/fan assembly and that there is no power, it sounds like the power supply has serious issues.

Try replacing the power supply unit to see if this makes a difference.

 The Dell Inspiron 3847 Mini Tower can use generic ATX power supply units, with either a 24-pin or 20+4-pin main motherboard power connector, with or without the on/off switch.

You should be able to buy a compatible power supply from either a local or online computer store.

Note: You require a power supply with four SATA power connectors.

Best to buy a power supply with a depth of around 5.9".

If you have a Dell warranty in effect, contact Dell's Technical support, no warranty, then you will need to buy the replacement.
