Dead PSU?!

Well as if my holiday season wasn't Jolly enough, I had experienced a slowdown in my service from Comcast Cable internet. Usually they are very good about performance and such, but recently even websites like google take forever to load up. Anyways, one step durring a wonderful tech support session was to unplug the computer completely and well, not it woln't turn back on. It was a home built rig and all I did was unplug the main power cable, and then about 30 seconds later, plug it back in. My computer was plugged into a surge protector and everything and something is fucked up now. Any advice as to how to fix this? I already contacted Antec about the case's psu but I doubt they will do anything before the 3 month warranty runs up.

How can I be 100% sure its the PSU? Also, can anything else need replacing besides the PSU? Can anything else be fucked?

    Standard procedure at this point is to replace the PSU with a "known good" (IE, you're sure it works) one, or use the PSU in another machine and see what happens.

    I wish there was a fricking LED at the back of the PSU like the one I have in my old computer, (the one Im using now...) but oh well. I contacted Antec and they will have to get back to me sometime soon.
