loud pop machine died

watching a streaming movie on Netflix when a very loud pop occured then machine died. I have no power now.

I have the iMac 24" model with a 2.16 GHz processor. I have to fix this. I can not afford another.

I guess it is the power supply but I really have no idea. Plus other bad things may have happened due to this loud pop.

Please send me in the right direction
