How do I get my computer to start?

Question

I left my computer on today while I was at school. Long story short, my room gets pretty hot during the day. I got home and played some games. Twice during those games, it restarted itself on me. Luckily, I have a Thermaltake case and I turned up all the fans and realized that the processor was probably a little hot. Now, my computer won't "start". The fans turn on and the disk drives check themselves, but there is no movement from my processor and there is nothing displayed on my screen. What should I do/buy?

You need to change your processor because it sounds like it burnt out In the future remember that computers need to stay in rooms that are around 70 degrees F.
