    the PC suddenly turned off, now it wont turn back on. i immediately assumed the PSU had blown but it turns out that it works fine in the other PC.
    Now the PC wont turn on at all. what could be wrong?

    Have you tried unplugging and then plugging back the Pwr switch cables etc? - just might be a bad contact.

    Also might be a dry joint on the Case end of the Pwr switch.

    Have you left the PC to stand for a while to ascertain whether its a thermal cutout fault?

    Having thought about it, were your system temps OK before this happened?
