Oscilloscope for checking for faulty power supplies is a good idea - I ended up buying a cheap second hand one for exactly this purpose.

A big alternative is a bin of spare parts. You can quite quickly isolate a faulty component if you can swap out components that are hopefully themselves good. Trouble is most people, even if they have multiple computers like me, the machines span different hardware generations, each of which have incompatible connectors between CPUs, memory modules, draw different amounts of power etc.
