Re: died

If nothing at all, not even the usual LED's on the motherboard, it could be the PSU. Get your Volt meter and check it against the specs.

Answer
I've Had That Happen, And Like Kees Said, Power Supply

If nothing is turning on, it's usually the power supply but try a few things first. Assuming it's a desktop..... and if you're plugged into a battery backup, unplug and go straight into the wall socket. If you've been playing with the back of the desktop computer, try switching the red switch on the back of the computer power supply to the "on" position. Tried using a different power cable to plug from the computer to the power outlet?

Hope this helps.
