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

Loud bang from system.Unit starts immediately power is supplied.Power switch does nothing.H/Drive and players run.No video ( card OK ) checked with another card. Can the problem be motherboard?

The load bang is most like an exploding capacitor in the switch mode power supply, especially if there is a burnt electrical smell from the power supply.
I suggest you borrow a switch mode power supply, remove the old power supply and install the replacement power supply. make sure it has the same or larger wattage unit.
If the computer still does not boot up then the exploding power supply has damaged the motherboard, and you need to replace then motherboard too. This may not be a cost effective solution.
This is an opportunity to get a new and better computer.

Video corruption - the video chip is faulty . Because the video chip is part of the chipset it means that the chipset is faulty, which causes the pc to crash.

I had a loud fan noise coming from inside my desktop box for a while. One day (& ever since,) when I went to turn the box on, absolutely nothing happened: no fans, no BIOS, no LEDs. I made no config...

This may work however i think by ignoring the sound of the Fan you might have destroyed the cpu and the motherboard.If you can try the processor in another machine you might just have to replace the motherboard only.
Good Luck

Computer suddenly dies intermittently


In this case when it is always beeping during the computer is on. You need to check the memory stick if it is not faulty. Remove the memory stick and clean it from dust. Clean also the memory slot and reinsert the memory stick. If the problem still occur try to use the other memory slot.

Good luck!

No Dispay, No Beep

Try leaving it off but with power to it (should see a small green LED on Mobo) for about 30 minutes or more.

After this time try starting it with RAM installed of course!

If this doesn't work your Motherboard is dead.

Startup problem

It has to be your M/board battery.
I had a similar problem and fitted another M/board battery and it fixed it
What is happening when you first turn it it on and it does not start and leave for 10 mins then reboot the battery has slight charge enough to boot computer
I would ensure you M/board battery is fitted correctly and that the fittings for it are good
