I had a small computer fire today was just smoke no flames actually. My question is why would it start I can’t figure it out. The red cable leading to the system speaker melted. It looks like it started at the mother board and went all the way to the speaker that sits on the bottom of the computer case. Only damage seems to be that one wire which is totally melted and broke off the small speaker. I took the speaker out since there isn’t any use for it that I know of, it just makes annoying beeps. What I was wondering though is why it might have started and is it alright to keep using the computer without that speaker there or plugged in. There is no damage to the motherboard or any of the cables that were plugged in next to it, so I can’t figure out how it started or even why it started. About an hour before it happened I had checked my system temp it was a little high was at 100f inside the case but I don’t see how that would melt the cable.
