    I was replacing my lcd screen on my late 2006 imac and while i was working on it i happened to touch the power supply the back of my lcd, then a bunch of sparks started flying everywhere. So i was wondering, would i have to just replace the power supply or would everything have to be replaced?

    Were you working on it while it was still plugged in, or were the sparks from the residual capacitor voltage? Either way, there's no reliable way to check without simply trying to see if it works, and if it doesn't, what it's symptoms are.

    If you are able to start it up, I would certainly run Apple Hardware Test.

    You can get seriously zapped or dead-inized real quick if you're not careful with what your doing....

    it was plugged in and when i tried turning it on nothing would happen, and the power supply has some burn marks on it, but the logic board looks normal, and how do i run an apple hardware test?

    The unit has to be able to power up to run Apple Hardware Test.
