Power failure

Hi! I'm having a bit of a problem turning my computer on... To summarize, I've had a working power supply for the past 2 or 3 months, and I shut down my computer to leave town for the weekend, but when I got home and pressed the power switch, absolutely nothing happened; no fans, nothing. The LED lights inside the case are on, and I triple-checked to make sure everything was properly plugged in and I've tried plugging it straight into the wall, but still nothing. My power supply is not mounted in my case (it's ghetto-rigged, I know), but it's worked fine for nearly 3 months. The connectors to the motherboard are also correctly plugged in, as I have not touched them since I put them in. I'm afraid my power supply might have died, but I hate to think that, and I have no clue how since it's been off the entire time I've been gone, and I've got a nice surge protector/power strip it's running from. If anyone's had similar problems or could give me any helpful feed back, I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks in advance.

the case switch might have crapped out...if you can get to the back of the power switch try to make a connection between the two posts that the wires going to your motherboard connect to....
