soccer ball struck my pc and now my pc wont turn on!

Help! My pc was on the floor while I was cleaning my desk and sure enough a soccer ball struck the side of my computer and it was not the side my motherboard is on either and didn't get hit super hard either but shut off and won't turn back on now. When I hold the button down for a few seconds then release it then push it in right away it turns on for a split second then shuts down. Just pushing the button does nothing. Im so upset! It's an older built pc, msi 7507 board, dual core 2.66, 2gb of RAM, corsair gs700 pay and geforce 210 1gb card. Thanks for any help!

That's some physical damage.

If you can't find it yourself, it's a job for a repair shop. Most likely candidates: PSU, motherboard, buttons and switches, cables.

Figured that, I have ab older working psu I'm gonna swap in and pray, if not its all best buys geek squad, i don't have the money for this Sad hope its just the psu, didn't even take that big of a hit and wasn't on the side the motherboard was on either, sucks

update, almost fixed jump in!

Switched out the psu and Yup it turns on but not over, its done this before with the other psu I installed, it turns on and the gpu fan spins super fast for a few seconds then is supposed to go to normal speed and boot up but the fan keeps spinning super fast and CPU won't boot. It's done this before and when I play with the wires I have fixed it before I'm thinking a loose wire touching metal from what I read, any advice? I feel so close

Check ALL of your component ...

connections to motherboard and component. It is possible that your RAM might have been knocked loose or your hard drive or even the CPU might have become un-connected.
