Hello!!

I have pentium 4 Dell computer with widows 2000 operating system. I got a problem with  my PC after I have done the following. I have bought an apparatus called Champion which is used for unlocking and repairing cellphones. I installed all softwares associated with the aparatus and  I connected the apparatus to the parallel port (LPT1) of my  PC.  But I made a mistake when I gave power to the aparatus. I gave high voltage AC and it  got burnt. (Short circuit is created and it became out of function). At the same time My PC became stuck. I restarted it but it couldn't start. I have measured the output of the power supply of the PC. the meter read nothing. I changed the fuse and when I measured it, it became ok. (12v and 5v dc), But still it couldn't start. what shall I  do  to correct the problem for my PC please?

I agree, the motherboard is probably shot.  You can try stripping it down, in case it's just a bad PCI card: video card, one stick of RAM, cpu, and nothing else.

If your system has everything onboard and no PCI cards, there's nothing more to check.  Otherwise, remove every PCI card, unless it's the video card.
