    Happened to me a couple of time when there was something dodgy going on with the power (workmen down the road hit the power lines). Reset the BIOS, unplug, switch the 0/1 switch on the PSU and then redo everything and it worked fine after that. Dont plug in powered speakers into a keyboard. You might be alright. If you notice any instability, you probably fried something on the MoBo

    If it shut off instantly, then something was blown. Look at where the smoke is rising from, that's probably the component that blew ;)

    Best of luck, sounds like you're in a pickle!

    update, saw your reply,
    Time for a new PSU ASAP, before you blow your MOBO!
    It could just be a loose wire, but it it worth the risk? [Rhetorical question]
