    Hi,
    I am trying to repair an atx-500 psu after the c3150 power transistor exploded in two pieces. Last night there was a thunderstorm which might be the main cause although this incident happened when the user tried to turn on the pc.

    Besides replacing this TO-220 device, which other crucial components should we check? Please note that the fuse remained intact.

    thanks
