Your title and explanations are a bit confusing. Did your PC work before installing a new PSU which failed and then you replaced it with another new Enermax PSU?

Was the old one an Enermax? It looks like the PSU fried the motherboard, but did you remove all components from the motherboard to see if it powers up? In other words, keep only the CPU and memory and power up.

Also remove the video card.

Unfortunately, using cheap PSUs leads to that type of catastrophic failure. The CPU should be OK and it's relatively easy to test the hard disk in another system, but it will probably be fine.

You could find a used one on eBay, Kijiji.ca or a local newsgroup (depending on where you are). If you can afford it, upgrade to a newer platform.

I've never seen a PSU do that much damage, unless it was struck by lightning. If that wasn't the case, then it looks like you had a really cheap PSU.

I don't really understand what you mean. Is the hard disk from the failed system SATA or PATA?

So you determined that it's defective. Other than the case, anything else that hasn't fried?

The controller on the hard disk needs to be replaced, but I wouldn't bother unless the data on it really is important.

You'll probably never buy another cheap PSU again. In the end it's costing you a lot more.

If you ask that question, then you probably should send the drive to a data recovery service, but it will be expensive. To replace the controller yourself, you'll have to find another identical drive with the exact same controller. It might work once the controller has been replaced, but you could also end up having to use professional services to recover your data. Performing regular backups always is less expensive than having to use data recovery services.
