Re: Dead computer (Possibly due to overheating)
When was the last time the PC was thoroughly cleaned [components, fans removed and cleaned , new thermal paste on the CPU]?
What were the temperatures like before the shutdown?
Do the lights on the motherboard light up when PSU is powered on [does the mobo have lights on it to tell you if it's got power]?
Have you checked for bad capacitors on the motherboard Badcaps.net - How To Identify
Is this a DIY PC; or did you buy it "off-the-shelf", if you purchased it from a retailer, maybe it's still under warranty and the retailer/ manufacturer can take responsibility for it being dead.
