Here's my guess: If you're lucky, only the power supply blew, and you
can just order a new one. If you aren't lucky, the innards got fried
as well, and there's probably not much that can be done.

Surge protectors are wonderful things.

That said, a power supply for the SB is like $15. And that is the most likely failure mode, that the power supply sacrificed itself.

The next likely failure is that inlet fuse on the mother board melted. But I don't think it's replaceable, so I'm not sure how much comfort that is.
