Hi,

When you say nothing happened when you turned it back on, do you mean no lights on the front, no drives or fan spinning up...completely dead or something come on but there is no display?

If completely dead, I do suspect the power supply is dead. If out of warranty, see if you can buy a new one with the agreement that the place you buy it from will take it back if the problem is not that. If still under warranty, just bring your system back for repair.
