This is a homebuilt system i've been upgrading since spring of 07. Something is very wrong here. I left my pc on last night because i fell asleep w/o turning it off. i woke up in the morning to find it turned off, and so i turned it on again so I could work on some homework of mine. There was no response from the computer except a weird noise coming from the PSU, and i'm beginning to worry my PSU just overloaded and fried my system. It's a BFG 800W. Does anyone know what i should do about this?

I think it's obvious that your PSU died. So, for sure you'll need a new one. Get a PSU and plug 'er in. Then decide if you have to replace anything else I wouldn't suggest getting another BFG PSU. Try a Tier-1 like PC Power & Cooling.
