I built my first box and its been going strong about 8 months. Last night I downloaded a .rar torrent file and when i tried to unload it, it said i needed a password. That seemed like a red flag to me so I deleted it. I was also playin Team fortress 2 for like 5 hrs at the same time. This morning, I turn on PC and everything turns on, but nothing boots up at all! didn't even hear the typical PC "Beep" when I turn it on.

HELP! and Happy New Years!!
