My poor computer !

D'oh ! My computer seems to have died. Last night, I had just started the demo for the new Lego Star Wars game, and it simply powered itself off and hasn't come back since. As far as I can tell, the fuse in the power cord plug is ok, and the fuse inside the power supply is ok, and it's getting power to the motherboard (at least, a light on the board comes on), but it just doesn't start up - none of the fans start, and nothing happens when I switch it on. I'm guessing either the CPU or motherboard have died.

*sigh*
Could be an expensive week ...

(meanwhile, I've borrowed rwrylsin's laptop and I'm sitting on the couch watching Doctor Who ... oh, the hardship :-) )
