Default Power doesnt turn on.. Motherboard problem? or PowerSupply problem?

Hi guys.
I dropped my desktop (not that hard) when it wasnt turned on,
and i saw a little spark from the inside of the desktop.
I tried to turn on my desktop, but the green power LED goes off, and
nothing happens. The fan doesnt start... nothing.
i tried disconnecting things one by one. RAMs, Harddrive,Graphic card, even the CD drive.
no changes were made. it was still the same.
However, when i disconnect the motherboard, the LED never went off but still fan doesnt start and nothing happens.
Whats the problem?

Unplug the 24 pin atx plug from the motherboard and jump the green wire to any black one with a paperclip. If the power supply turns on, the motherboard is most likely the problem. If it doesn't, then it's the power supply.
