First time posting here so be kind.
I have a Phillips desktop machine which up to a few weeks ago was running fine. 4 weeks back I was running a virus scan and left the machine alone only to return an hour later and find the machine off and the power cord at the back completely melted at the connector.
After an initial panick I replaced the cord and the machine booted up again and ran absolutely fine.
4 weeks have passed now and today I noticed a burning smell whilst the computer was on and I noticed the power cord was starting to seriously melt again.
P.S. I have checked the machine for internal dust clogging fans and the first time the cord melted there was alot of dust stuck in both extracting fans. The second time the cable melted I checked inside the machine to find absolutely no dust.
