If you are sure it is the PSU it has to be worth trying a replacement. Cost from around £15 DIY
That way you will have two computers once again.

I have had a laptop die in a similar way, have put the old drive in a USB caddy and can see the drive contents.
However, directories created in Docs & settings by other users with passwords and set private are not accessible, even with as many admin privs that I can find. Any ideas how to get at these?
