Default Could dead motherboard damage other parts?

I have a question. Well, this is also for someone's request to put my mobo in my sig so here it is.

But my question is.... since my motherboard is apparently dead, would that have caused any damage to my cpu, ram, gpu, and the other stuff that i connected to it? Because i turned it on and stuff and i thought it may have caused a damage to those other parts too.

hopefully not.

yeah, you really can't be sure until you can test the components. however in my experience components are pretty hardy against things like that and it's rare that you'll have more than one component failure.

thanks for making me feel better.

I hope that the guys at compusa were right and that the motherboard was the one thats really not functioning and not some other parts.
