Default need help! possible power supply problem??

I just returned today to my college and tried to start up my computer with no avail...the motherboard power light is on but when I go to start my computer nothing happens...Is this a matter of my power supply or some other piece of hardware?
If it helps, the room the computer was in was a toasty 70 degrees all through the month that I was gone...could that cause something in the computer to actually overheat?? It was far clear of the heater.

do the fans start up and does anything heat up?

if so check your power button to motherboard connection

as i've told many a people on the forums...

try using individual sticks of ram.. ram is usually a cause of not booting up

so... as early, plain and simple try one ram stick at a time.. if that fails... then you probably got a dead psu

i have a 650 watt w/ 57 amps you can take for 80 dollars shipped haha
