Default Power Problems

I plugged in a firewire cable into my front port the other day (I've never used it til now) and I heard a small pop. After that all my USB devices stopped working. My keyboard worked so I tried restarting. After the restart my video card wasn't displaying. So I assumed this was my power supply. I shut it off for an hour before I started working on it. After that nothing would turn on. So I swapped the power supply and still nothing. Did I fry my mother board? Or is there something else it could be?

Dell E1705
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0GHz T7200
2GB DDR2 667MHz
80GB 5400RPM HDD
256MB nVidia 7900 GeForce Go
