As the title suggests this morning when I went to turn on my computer there was an a loud pop/bang from the PSU, it also tripped the breakers for that room.
I've had problems recently turning on the computer, it would turn off instantly and would do this a few times before staying on, then today it went pop.
I'm know I'm going to have to get a new power supply, but I was wondering if I should be worried about any of the other parts of my computer being damaged as well. Also any suggestions as to why the psu blew would be appreciated.

So you typically turn the computer off from the wall or PSU after you shut down in Windows?

YOU are the only one who is able to give a concrete answer for this, and no one else. You have to test everything.

Hmm...
-shoddy wiring behind those walls
-the residence doesn't have a proper ground
