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.

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 :-) )
