Default PSU or mobo?

My P4 tower had shut off itself.

The thing is, it made a spark..so...does the spark came from my PSU or the mobo just literally fried?

And to say I was formating my HDD

I think your asking what component the spark originated from, correct? To find this out inspect the parts for burned/black capacitors etc. You should also check the various components with a multimeter.

No...the comp was already build...the mobo was defective, but I decided to keep it...here you go: a fried mobo...yours will be OK, but if there is a problem...take it back
