Hello everyone! Before I go through every piece of hardware in my PC, I was wondering if anyone has had the same problem as I and can pinpoint what I need to replace.

I was adding another CD-Rom drive to my computer this morning, turned on my PC and the CD-Rom didn't work. I noticed I didn't securely attach the power supply cable to the CD-Rom. While the PC was still turned on (moronic moment) I push the cable in further and it flashed a blue spark and the PC turned off.

I can't get the PC to turn back on and wondered if anyone knew exactly what I killed. I'm assuming the power supply, but I wanted to make sure.

:whistling:

Thanks!

After buying a new PSU from Best Buy, I uninstalled the old PSU from my system. With curiosity, I plugged the old PSU back into the motherboard and plugged the power cord back in. To my amazement, it worked!.....Yay!
