I went on vacation adn disconnected my desktop to avoid any electrical surges or blackout problems. When I returned my desktop does not turn on. I took it to Stapkles and they said if it doesn't turn on they cannot diagnose a problem. It is not even 3 yrs old. Please help. I purchased it form you diirectly.

Marilug, welcome to the forum.
When requesting help, you should always include the make/model of the computer and/or monitor. This information is necessary for us to review the specifications of them.
This sounds to me like a failed power supply unit (PSU). Here is a guide to help you troubleshoot the problem. It would help to know exactly what happens when you push the power button. Also, have you checked all of the connections?
Please click "Accept as Solution" if your problem is solved.

I have the same problem with my Pavilion slimline s3321p. less than 3 years old. It locks up and will not turn on but the green light on the back is on. A yellow light sometime flashes from the power button.

Like Old_Geekster said, I would check the power supply:
