Computer shut off, power button won't do anything

My computer just turned off and won't turn back on. I see the LED power light of the power supply on, but when I try to turn on the PC itself nothing comes on (none of the fans, no lights from the motherboard). It shut off when I was attempting to play a game.
Just recently I had my PC shipped to Hawaii after I had moved here. Upon it arriving, I found everything was kept in place and found the CPU fan hanging from the motherboard. When it arrived, it only turned on for about a minute before shutting off. I decided to buy some thermal compound and reapply it. It worked.
The computer worked fine for the next two days and then I tried playing a game, only to have it shut off and not turn on again.
I am not sure if it's my PSU (Blue Storm II 500W) or if something shorted in the motherboard. I did not hear any pop or anything when it shut off.
Thanks for any help!
