Power Supply died - what now? - SOLVED!

UPDATE - I have bought the Corsair RM 750 power supply and installed it after a bit of fiddling around with the cables - and it works now! Everything works flawlessly once again! 

 

---------------------------------------------------

 

So... Just a few minutes ago, i was casually playing Team fortress 2, when my PC turned off without any warning. In my fuse box, the breaker for the outlets of my living room were down, off. After a call with my somewhat tech savvy brother, he and I tested around on the socket and...

Everything worked, except for my Computer.

Now, the power supply I used in my PC was an old 600 watt LC Power PSU. I have.. no idea how old it was. But all i know now is that my PC won't turn on, and I'm very stressed out about it now. How will I do home office now? How will I game?

More important, what the hell do I do now? Like.. how do I know that my components aren't fried? As soon as I have money I'll get a new power supply that actually is reliable.. but what do you guys think? Anything I should do?

Thank you.

Not much to do. Just buy a new power supply and hope everything else still works.

I'm not surprised it failed.

Make sure this time you get a GOOD QUALITY UNIT.

 

Pick whatever works from the A or B tier.
