Well Blade mentioned that there was a little spark, that can happen in two cases, he shortcircuited something or it was a sharp discharge from a capacitor.
Although the power supply may or may not be ok, but the display card would get damaged in that case.

One disk to rule them all,
One disk to bind them,
One disk to hold the files
And in the darkness grind \'em.

You are correct, but I use to test broken parts anyway, just in case. You never know when luck misght strike you, and I've had a few experiences when, after a flame-out, the parts worked.
