Yesterday I turned on my computer and heard a loud pop. The power supply (Antec) is dead and the motherboard. Is it likely that the RAM, video card and processor are OK? I don't have another motherboard (socket 939) to test the parts.

I guess I can't complain about the PS, it lasted 5 yrs, but I wish I'd gotten a warning that it was going to fail, before it took out my motherboard. Even though my computer was old, it did the job.

Thanks in advance.

I had a power supply blow and even catch fire when I wiggled the power cord.
It still protected the hardware and everything else was fine.
Are you sure the motherboard is bad?
I just changed power supplies and booted it up.

Without testing it is hard to say, its possible that they have survived OK but its also possible that they are dead.
