    All of the sudden the computer turned off without warning. It hasnt turned back on yet and is making a burning smell as if it overheated and melted something. I know nothing about computers so i don't know if it is something simple thats wrong or if the hard drive can be saved because i have a lot of things on it. Help please, thanks

    Either power supply or capacitors on the motherboard, crack open the case and see if you can figure out where the burning smell is coming from.
