pc shut down and wont turn back on

My HP Pavilion A320N shut down by itself when I was away from the computer.  Now I can't get it to turn back on.  I have tried unplugging cables and reinstalling, but it didn't help. Can someone help?

Re: pc shut down and wont turn back on

When I saw that model number, I knew this was an older computer.  On a model that old, it probably is a hardware falure.  Open the cover to see if the insides are dirty and dusty.  If yes, it could be just about anything.  If it is clean, then I would start with checking the power supply.
