Sparks from loose PSU cable

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

When I turned on my PC the PSU cable was loose and there was some sparks coming from the back of the case. I turned everything off and plugged it back in and it is working fine. Should I change my PSU or is it OK?

Was it the power cable from the wall? It'll be fine, just make sure it's properly inserted.

First of all was it from the cable or the PSU? How old and which model is your PSU? Is it plugged in all the way


Reminder⚠️

I'm just speaking from experience so what I say may not work 100%

Please try searching up the answer before you post here but I am always glad to help
