Power supply from laptop ozone smell

I have a laptop which gave a small "plof" sound, after that the laptop was totally dead. The smell is like ozone, the same when a power-supply from a desktop computer stops working. This is new to me when it's on a laptop.

"First you can 100% the laptop hard drive by putting it in an enclosure made to check out laptop hard drives and see if it will come on in another PC.

As for the smell it could be a number of different components that are causing the smell (which should probably not be inhaled too much out of common safety practice). If it was just the fan there should be a chance the laptop will come back on if just for a few seconds to either give a cpu fan error of some kind."
