plug melted in the dvd drive....sounds like some things got fried. You will have to get a new psu (get a quality brand like corsair, pc power and cooling, ocz, etc to avoid this happening again) and hope that it didn't take any other components with it. If you get a new psu you can check the rest of the components with it but i wouldn't be surprised if your mobo etc got fried.

Here is a link to an inexpensive power supply tester:

Unless the plug that melted was the actual IDE conector, and not the 4-pin molex supplying it power (and I don't see how that could happen), it's probably unlikely that you fried your MOBO; much more likely that your power supply is cooked.

Get a new psu and check everything else (like the mobo) before throwing money away on things that may or may not be dead.
