after power outage my pc [Dell using XP] will not power up; no sounds, no lights, etc. Other hardware in the same surge protector have turned on, but not the pc tower. I plugged it directly into the wall outlet; still no sounds or lights. Help please.

Sounds like the PSU in it died!

Could be the fuse in the power cable...
what caused the power outage? did the whole house or street go out?

Sounds like the PSU died and took out the trip in the surge protector or the RCD in the consumer unit. But that's a lot of possible causes.
