How to avoid this:
1) Never trust the stuff on smart TVs. Use your own equipment and plug it into the TV.
Don't buy those $10 PSU "specials". They fail, and they have taken whole computers with them.

For computer parts, go to Newegg

For electrical stuff(pushbuttons, capacitors, etc), use Digikey

My computer doubles as a space heater.

Windows 10? Only if you like forced, buggy updates and 24/7 telemetry.

Samsung = Seagate = Seatrash = Trashgate
Don't buy Seagate drives. Don't use Seagate drives. If you have any in service right now, make plans to replace them ASAP.
