After you make sure this isn't the case (shortcircuit), disconnect the HDD and the optical drive, and just start your computer and enter bios. Check voltages and checkout the bios without playing too much with it and only after 10 min of running, turn it off and connect the HDD. Enter the bios and see if it sees the HDD. Power down then connect the optical. Then try and install an OS.

If your psu dies again that is a sign you have a shortcircuit somewhere.
I've heard that linux community came up with better implemented security in it's latest Linux Mint Gold version, it's actually preventing the user to log in, thus posing 0 risk in contamining the computer with malware! Well done to the open source community!
