Default Power supplies go pop

I have an intel celeron 2ghz computer which stopped working at weekend after some deduction I worked out that the power supply had blown. so I replaced it with on of the same wattage and type. guess what it's blown again.Can anyone help with the fault finding process in working out why the PSU has blown for a second time

regards t
