I was gonna suggest to use another power supply and noticed you've already done that. So yes, I think the MB is fried.

You can try to take the whole MB out of the case and test again to make sure that it is not shorted. If it does not work then you'd have to replace the MB. I don't think you can find any where that they can do MB repair. It would cost a lot more and time to do this kind of job.

Thanks. I'll try this. I'll get back here soon. :thumb:

UPDATE: HMOG! when i take the MB out. I just found out that the foam (What type of foam is that? What is it called?) is melted.

Question. Why do they put the foam? is it necessary? The foam melted in the MB, does the MB has a chance to function again?
