    Try unplugging the power cable and turn the switch at the back off

    Leave it for about 30 seconds or so and plug it back in BUT DONT FLIP THE SWITCH ON YET

    After about 10 seconds flip the switch back on and wait for a further 10 seconds

    then press the power button

    If that doesn't work then try pressing the power button a bit further in and wiggle it about

    It could be loose

    Hope this helps

    Some newer power supplies have protection circuitry in them. Dells are notorius for this. Unplug the power cable from the back of your PC, count to 20 and plug it back in. See it it starts back up. Good luck

    Why did you have to shut down the PC?

    Maybe you installed a dodgy Windows Update or something?

    Try and get it on Safemode, and then revert PC back to its normal settings.
