    Basicly I had a Flash Drive in one of my USB ports at the front of the Tower.
    I knocked it passing by and it made the USB port a bit out of shape (I have 2 ports there 1 on top of the other).

    When I was trying to fix the ports into shape as I couldn't get 2 USB devices onto it, (I stupidly left the power on, duh) There was a bang and smoke came from the PSU.

    I immediately pulled out the lead and went got a new PSU 750m instead of the 600w I was using before this happened.

    I installed the PSU and nothing happened. No fans blowing, no boot up even starts,...............Nothing at all.

    I've put it into a PC repair shop but i'm afraid they're gonna say £300.00 minimum

    Anyway thanks for your help!

    The usb ports have a 5 volt rail that powers devices, since it feeds thru the motherboard from the power supply, and from what you have described, you've probably shorted out something in the motherboard in the 5 volt circuit

    doublecheck all power connections that you made when you changed out the power supply

    A motherboard is not that expensive but when they die they can possible take other components with them
