Default [SOLVED] Computer will not boot. help!

I was running prime95 to test my OC and when I got back it was dead! It wont turn on at all. Any idea if there is something I can do to get it working? If not what do you guys think is dead. PSU? I'm sure you need more information. So just ask what you need and thanks in advance!

Oh God I just crapped my pants! I took out my cmos battery and put it back in and now its back to normal. For once I figured it out myself:p there was a weird crackling noise and spark though.... so idk what that was.

A psu that is on it's way out may act in this fashion. Please state your system specs and your brand of psu. It will give us an idea what you're working with.

The pop and spark was from the mosfet. I guess my voltage was too high. I'm still kinda new to this OC'ing thing.

I don't really need any help here though so I guess I will make the thread solved.
