    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Try another psu and see if that helps.

    Check this psu wattage calculator HERE.

    Make sure you get a decent psu. Antec/fortron/Enermax all make good quality psu`s.

    If it doesn`t, theres a good chance you`ve got some major damage to the mobo etc.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Oh dear, that`s not good.

    I`d say it`s almost certainly the mobo that`s fried.

    Yes, that`s always a good idea, but I`ve seen this problem many times and it`s nearly always a mobo problem.

    Please let us the know the outcome.

    Good luck.

    Regards Howard :)
