My power supply on my regular X Box short circuited and now the system won't turn on. Would it be possible to buy a new power supply and hook it up to my X Box? When I was messing with the power cord some sparks started up and there was a burnt smell.

Chances are you can get a free replacement from Microsoft. Call XBOX support.

Check the capacitors on the PSU's PCB. You can easily buy a cap of the same rating and solder it on if you find a bad one.

Or... you could buy this $20 replacement off of ebay if your Xbox is version 1.2-1.5. (Google how to check your version)

EDIT: Here's one for version 1.6

And this one is advertised as working for 1.0 and 1.1
