It was working fine last night, but when I woke up this morning it just wouldn't turn on. Everything is plugged in, so i'm not sure what's up.

Is the switch on the back of the PSU on? Idk how it would get off, but it's worth checking. If it's plugged into a surge protector, try connecting it directly to the wall or another surge protector. If that doesn't work, it could still be the PSU itself, a loose cable inside the case, the power button on the case itself, or the motherboard. Those are the most likely issues.

Your power supply is bad, so go out, and buy a new one they are easy to install, and only cost about 50 dollars new for 450 watt one. Bring your tower with you, and your local PC store will probably install it for you for a nominal fee.

Do your ceiling lights still work?

I heard a story about a PC help call from a guy that couldn't get his PC to turn on. After going through all these trouble shooting issues, the guy says something about looking with a flashlight. So the PC tech guy asks why he's using a flashlight and the customer says,"Because they power's out."

That'd suck considering I just put together the PC in January >_>

Ok... I tried the stuff posted here. Everything seems to be connected fine.

the stuff in the video mainly uses a power supply and motherboard tester... Both of which I don't have

Can you get access to a multimeter?

Not that i'm aware of, but I'll ask my parents when they get home. Is it the same thing you use on cars?

It's what you use to read voltage/resistance/amperage/continuity/etc. They look like this:
