    Something else you should do is to replace the thermal paste between the CPU and heat sink.

          So, I come back home from work today only to find out the computer powered off again. (It happened to me yesterday. I came home and it was turned off). Only this time, I cannot get it to start again... could this be a power supply problem?

            Any suggestion other than buying another PSU? (I have yet to clean it off).

            Borrow a known good one of the same or greater wattage and swap it in there...
