Hi, I am just wondering why my computer reacted with two loud explosive sounds after being turned on. It had been switched off for a month. The computer had a burnt smell afterwards. I wonder if the power outlet on the wall is related, as this outlet has a dent just beneath and appears to be leaking some liquid. There is also a snaking line extending from the outlet indicating perhaps an issue. I have attached photographs. The outlet was connected to an extension power outlet with three additional plugs. Thanks.
Thankyou. Could there be a cause for the liquid draining down, there is definitely a streak of liquid from the outlet.
