I heard a loud popping sound like a light bulb blew up and then my PC would not power on. I bought a new psu ,same wattage 750, and now my PC boots up but only to the bios screen. In the mainboard settings the system status says that all sata ports are "not present". It doesn't show my 2 HDDs or my SSD. Coud some electrical component blowing up destroy my psu and motherboard? Can someone help determine if I do need a new motherboard or can I troubleshoot this issue. Thanks.
