|The Powersupply is always the first suspect but it isn't the only possible cause of your problem. Obviously there is something else wrong. Last time I had a system let the factory pre-installed smoke out, the PSU, Motherboard & CPU were all fried, along with a PCI network card. |
Ram & drives were the only bits salvaged.
The only way to test these components is by swapping them out with known good parts so unless you have access to compatible spares then you may either take it to a tech and see if they will test at no/small cost, or look to buy/build a new system
