Sounds like your cpu might have overheated OR your PSU gave out. Are there any burn marks, or melted parts of the cpu? I'm assuming there is power to the computer right? All of the fans are spinning, and the cd trays can open and close? If there isn't nay power, you might want to try using a different PSU, maybe switching out the one from your kids computer temporarily so you dont have to go out and buy a new one.
