It sounds like your computer power supply went bad.
go to your local computer store and buy a power supply, install it and you should be up and running.
that is if you didn't fry everything from running it without the proper cooling.
make sure that you have proper cooling fans in your computer, a fan outside will not do it.
It sounds like your power supply fan stopped working and it just got to hot and died

Computer componants are very suceptable to hard failures due to excessive heat. When you try to power on the system, if absolutely NOTHING happens, there are several indications that the PSU has gone bad. However some newer computers will not even attempt to activate the PSU if the motherboard / CPU has gone bad.
I would however like to agree with ipodslinger. the first step in determining, and a fixing your problem would be to do the following:
1) replace the power supply unit (PSU)
2) Replace any non-functional cooling fans
3) Try to boot the PC, if fails, step 4 ->
4) Replace the CPU
5) replace the motherboard
If none of these solutions work, it is beyond me to further diagnose the issue with the available information.
