Answers :

There are quite a few possibilities here. Do you leave your computer on while you're not home? If so, it's possible the computer overheated. If that happened, most likely you processor is damaged, and will have to be replaced.\015\012\015\012There may have been a power surge, which could have damaged the power suppply or the motherboard.\015\012\015\012It does nothing when you push the button? There's also a remote chance the switch is merely broken... though I can't say I've ever actually seen that happen. \015\012\015\012If it does absolutely nothing, it's most likely the power supply, however. If the motherboard or processor were bad, it would probably beep when you tried to turn it on. Not definitely, but probably.
