hey guys , ive had a pc for about 3 months not who i got off a freind and today when i got home i was told that it had blown and there was a loud bang and there is a smell coming from the power supply and from the cpu fan, and it wont start up i got a multimeter on the power cables to the hard drive and there is no power geting to it , erm just wondering, is there a chance i will need to get a new motherboard aswell or just a pwoer supply , and any ideas how the cpu is, :)

There are a lot of clever people here, but, to my knowledge, none of them are clairvoyant. There is no way of knowing the answers to your questions. All you can do is try a new pwr supply and cross your fingers.
