    At all.
    Yes, it is plugged in :)
    I press the "on" button, and NOTHING happens, no fan, no lights, nada.

    One thing, there was like a red switch above my power socket on the computer, (where the lead goes into) with 230v and 115V, and I switched it, from 203 to 155, and then it didn't work. That might be the problem, I don't know. But when i switched it back to 203v, still, nothing happened.

    The last time I turned it off, I'm pretty sure I just shut it down, like I usually do, instead of putting it on stand-by.

    Not sure where you are located but if in US, and you turned it on after switching that, then you blew out power supply though it sounds like it was blown anyway and is your issue. I hope it was blown before you threw the switch because if not you may have done considerably more damage then that. Personal;ly it is time to take the power supply out and to a shop fopr testing...perhaps the whole tower.
