Please help me diagnose a dead computer. The missus' computer was just dead one morning. Pressing the power butten results in absolutely nothing.

When unplugging the power cord I can hear a very quiet noise fading from the power supply. I can reproduce that by plugging and unplugging the power cord. Other then that, nothing. Zilch. Nada. I have looked inside the case, but can't see anything obviously fried, disconnected or otherwise broken. I don't have any spare parts available, so can't really try changing components. Any suggestions for what I should look for?
