I have a compaq Presario. I had a usb cord pluged into the front usb port and the cat chewed through the cord. There was a spark and now nothing. The only the power supply indicator light is on when I plug it in. Is the power supply shot or the motherboard?

Help!!

You can check the power supply with a multimeter to see if all the voltages are there. Read the sticky " Troubleshooting with a multimeter" in this forum.

I would suspect that the mobo is damaged due to the USB short.
