New power supply looks okay; in terms of specs.
Sadly, when a system takes a direct voltage spike like the one your experienced, the motherboard often takes the brunt of the power spike emitted by the failing power supply (the pop you heard).
I you have replaced the power supply, and the system still will not power on:
1) check physical connections to the board, all components are seated, power is in place to the board.
2) You have voltage from the power supply (assuming you know how to use a multimeter)
12v on the yellow (this can vary between 10.5-12.9)
5V on the Red (same variance of +/- .3 V)
Black shows a ground (voltmeter centers out)
3) Replace the Motherboard
I found your MB on E-bay between $34-$50

Good Luck

More than sure if you have replaced the power supply already and the computer still not working,there must be a electrical damage to the board.
it is sure that.but you have to check some other components too seeing that they are stuck in the board,like the procesor and ramm dims or the video card..the electrical charge may have affect them too.
but 1st thing to do is to change the mainboard..
oh by the way...just to be sure..try to make a bios reset..maybe it will work and pull out the ramms from the computer..put them back after...ussualy this works...
good luck and let me know about

My kenmore dryer won't spin or tumble. The motor runs but no tumbling. I heard a loud bang but didn't know what happened. çould it be the belt?

If the drive motor is still running, the loud bang you heard was either the belt breaking, or slipping off the idler pulley. I will need a model number in order to give you spcific details on how to open the appliance in order to inspect and replace your belt. If you need assistance on how to properly route the dryer belt on to the drive motor shaft and idler pulley, has dryer belt diagrams listed under their "Special Features" section. Just click on the "Repair Help" link at the top of their web page, to start. You will need either diagrams H, B or K. Its hard to determine which diagram without your model number. Post back with your information and let me know.

Bed sheets or comforters will often get out of balance in the spin cycle or during the rinse cycle. Throw some towels in there next time at least 5 big ones. They are engineered to take a little of this banging, it should only happen once in a while.
