Hello...

Would be nice to post system specifications...

Do you hear PC is powering up or it is totally dead???

Is PC dusted inside the case???

You should clean it first, reset the RAM modules and graphic card too...

Keep us posted...

1. Checked the wall to be certain the outlet isn't dead?

2. Tried a high wattage power supply?

3. You can get a power supply testing device and test the power supply to know if it's still good or not (I'm assuming not in your situation).

4. You might have loose cable connections from the power supply to the various parts in the computer and/or computer parts that aren't seated properly including a CPU or RAM modules that are not "snug."

5. Need more details about your computer...
