My PC won't turn back home.
It went off yesterday, so I replaced the power cord and it came back on. So I thought that I solved the problem. While I was working on it, it got very hot, so I turned it off, but now it won't turn back on, any ideas? Thanks

My 'guess' would be that the power supply fan quit. That could cause overheating and damage. But that's only one possibility.

To check the power supply you either need:
A second unit to swap in
A power supply tester > http://www.amazon.com/Power-Supply-...
A multimeter and > http://www.duxcw.com/faq/ps/ps4.htm
