    I'm typing this from my lappy. An hour or so ago my foot tripped on the powerbar, and my pc got shut down. When it was shutting down I heard a zap, but didn't think much of it.

    But after plugging the powerbar back in I tried to boot the comp, but the comp merely comes on for a sec or two and shuts. I don't even get a system beep. When it does come on for a sec or two the back PSU fan spins like a mofo.

    I'm thinking it's mos likely a PSU failure. Dammit, that was actually a decent PSU

    Either point me to a different possible problem (probably false hope) or suggest me another decent PSU.

    Antec NeoPower 480 or Seasonic S12 600.
    I've run them both and can recommend them without hesitation.
