Well got it off Ebay from a company called dotcombuilder and just replaced the power supply.New it was the power supply but sounds alittle more than a power supply to me!!!

Sound like more than the power supply to me as well get them to replace the whole lot or get your money back.

I've built about 20+ computers now and I've only had a power supply blow once. When I opened the case there was bits of glass all over the inside, the glass fuse in the power supply had blown, fortunatly nothing else was damaged and I just replaced it. It is possible you've just had very bad luck with 2 power supplies going but I would say its very unusual for this to happen. I would be looking for a replacement system or a refund personally because there could be something else wrong and you have no way of telling.
