Power Supply/Motherboard Issue?

  1. I have a gaming rig with the following stats:

    500W Power Supply
    9500 AMD Q4 Chip
    Don't recall what motherboard I put in there, but it was functioning
    Nvidia GTX 260 Video Card
    6 GB RAM
    1x 1TB HDD
    1x 400GB HDD

    In any case, there was a decently big power issue recently, and although the computer was hooked to a power strip, I'm pretty sure there was damage done as the computer will not turn on now; I can press the power button but the computer will not respond, and I went in and double checked the connections to make sure all was in working order (it was). It was in perfect working order previously, with all cables and equipment functioning, and the BIOS and everything was up to date. My issue is that I have no idea what got shot, the motherboard itself, or the power supply. Any suggestions?

    Can you borrow a power supply and hook it up?
