Default Re: psu

It's possible that the PSU could have damaged other computer components. The only way to find out is get another good, reliable, brand name power supply and install it.

You should have replaced it when the fan stopped working, its there for a reason. Its possible that you have damaged the mobo, but you wont know for sure until you get a new PSU. Try and get a good make its one of the most important parts of your PC.
