Answers :

Make sure your cables are all firmly connected.\015\012\015\012Also check the power strip or surge protector.\015\012\015\012If all is connected well and the pc will still not turn on it looks like the problem is the power supply unit, which can be replaced for around $20.\015\012\015\012I hope this works :).
