    Generally speaking I never put the case back together untill all is fine.Just a superstition of mine.......eheheh

    Is the HDD Spinning up???
    Is the PSU of a type that it is putting enough power into your machine
    Double check all connections,then check again
    Check all Hardware Connections,Unseat and Reseat Mem Modules,GFX Card,Monitor.ect....
    Did you put the Other 4 Pin Power Connecter on your MB (Assuming)
    Take all unessaccary Cards out and Boot with the Bare Minimum

    The computer that the power supply blew up on is fixed and working ok now. This is the other computer that i took th cover of to have a look where things went because i wasnt sure where to plug the power supply back in on the one that blew up. I didnt unhook anything or touch anything in this one. It just decided it didnt like being undressed and unplugged i suppose lol, gawd

    Some computers have a warning for Open case. If this is happening on your friends computer, that could be the reason it's not powering up. You said he's getting POST but an error, what's the error message say?

    You could have shorted something, or perhaps a ram chip or the video card was bumped loose. I'd recheck every connection inside.

    Keep us posted. If you walked across carpet, you may have zapped something with static electricity.
