the FPGA is dead i guess.

few years back when probing signal, my connector touched one pin on a Spartan-2, and spark! It's gone.

I guess FPGAs are very volatile.

I did the same thing once, replaced a couple of capacitors and it was fine. In my experiance with blowing up regulators, the circuitry they are feeding has usually survived. I may have just been lucky though.
Replace the regs, and caps if necessary - it'll either work or it wont. But it'll only cosy a couple of pounds to find out.

check the power first make sure all the voltages are correct, then try to programm the board
