Default [PSU? Help] This is buggin me right now

I just build a new machine this week, here are the specs:

MSI K8N Neo Platinum MOBO
AMD Athlon 64 3200
Raidmax case w/ 350w psu
Corsair Value Select Ram (1g) PC3200
8gb SATA WD harddrive

-My knowledge of computers Isn't awesome.
-I decided to use the stock psu since I wasnt doing anything spectacular.
-Not knowing, I flipped the psu to 230w when now I know it was supposed to be on 115v.
-When I tried to start the comp up, the fans moved a little but nothing ran.
-I switched the psu but that didnt do anything.

I'm pretty sure everything is hooked up and in the right places.
The first psu jerked the fans which was kinda wierd.
The second psu did nothing.

I'm really just looking for solutions like could I have blown my mobo by having 230v on the first time? What other solutions could be logical besides not having things hooked up?

Yep, sry! 230volts will fry EVERY last component in the PC, guarenteed... EVERYTHING, you name it, it is gone. Hope they have warranties, you could say that your PSU was defective, and then have the case company remburse you. SRY MAN!! I AM REALLY SORRY THAT HAPPENED!!

i'm awesomly pissed off but that wouldnt solve anything. i'll take the comp up to a shop tomorrow to check if EVERYTHING is totally blown. new semester coming up means buying books and spring break so i'm not going to buy everything for the comp. we'll see.

Well, like I said, Lie about PSU and say it was defective and blew the PC up. Use warranties on parts.

LOL. yeah. but sometimes, you either suffer and tell the truth or see your mistake, fix it with a little dab here and there, and maybe you wont make the same mistake twice, eh?
