poor Guy.

it sounds like your Power Supply exploded. i believe that there is a Test Button on the Back of the Power Supply. hold it and see if the Test LED  goes on or not.

you can try to replace it but the Chances are high for other Components being damaged aswell.

do you still have Warranty? probably not, right?

at this Point i think ebay is your best Choice. open the Case and look for the Model Number for the PSU so you know what you're looking for. or try to replace the broken PSU with 3rd Party one like Be Quiet or Corsair for Example.

Good Luck.
