bec failed - sent 12 volts to input side - can anything be done?

I power my 2.6 board from both sides with 2 becs.  the input side bec failed and sent 12 volts to the input.I have been using the APM boards for 2 years and thought I was being safe by powering with 5v becs.. I had no idea the bec could fail in such a BAD way, by just becoming a passthrough!Now board does not not respond on usb and doesn't work.  Is there anything I can do or is it completely dead.thanks for a reply.See More
