Default motherboard question

my moms computer died earlyer this year, we bought it off a friend of the family who builds them. When we took it to him eh said the Powersupply died in it ( i dont know what happend.. my sister had been on it and she said it turned off?) anyways.. would that have taken the motherboard with it? how can i tell if its still good? im salvaging the parts of it for just a box for music and what not so i can keep my future one for games ect. but yeah , how can i tell if it took the motherboard with it? its an asus as99127f, wev had the computer since about 02-03 :P incase that helps

really the only way to know if it is still good is to plug another power supply into it and see if it works.

no it shouldnt. no guarantees of course


but if it is the mobo it likely wont power up, if it is the old PSU that was bad it will. make sure you have RAM, cpu, and graphics installed.
