i dont think that would do anything, unless it got wet. what type of computer is it? laptop or desktop? if its a laptop, put it on the charger for about 30min then try to turn it on, if its a desktop, what happens when you press the powerbutton. and is the keyboard plugged in when u try to turn it on? i had a pc that wouldnt turn on unless the keyboard is plugged in

Emachines are good for DOS gaming.

My guess is that the PSU died. -

my guess is that, presuming while it was in the boot of your car it was actually in transit not just in there for no reason, something came loose such as a power cable, the memory or the power switch cable.

40-50 F wouldn't really do anything to a computer.

It has to get colder inside your house

Yes, my house gets about 10 degrees celcius at night. And that's about 3 degrees celcius.

However, most people leave their PC's on, or standby, which keeps them warm and toasty.

How long was the computer left in the car? Only 1 night?
