Compaq Presario S5000NX (desktop)
Fan spins for about a second, light next to power button turns on for a second then off again. Light by the power cord flickers then dies when you press the power button-when you stop trying to turn on the computer the light is solid.
I had this computer for around 4 years, bought from a rental place. As of a year ago the computer would be slow on and off for no apparent reason. For a few weeks recently it sometimes didn't want to turn on, then after a few tries did turn on, now it doesn't come on period.
I need to fix it ASAP as my husband has all his college work on it (only half is backed up to a removable drive)...
EDIT: (Also the CD drive as of a few weeks ago didn't always open when you press the button)

Please post rather than send me a Message. It's good for the community and I might not be able to get back quickly. - Thank you.
