When i press the power button, the CPU's LED does not light up and the system is not running.

What is the possible problem with the CPU??

It could be your actual power supply. Is the cable securely connected? How long have you had the computer for?

A quick check. When you push the power button, does the power supply fan, located in the back of the computer, spin?

is the computer plugged into the wall? Are you sure there is power to the compute check all the cables after time they can pop out if it gets moved or nudged. Then check when you press the power buttion does the power supply spin the fan at all? If not you have a bad PSU [power supply unit]. If it does spin make sure the monior is good and powered on and plugged into the computer. if you can rule out the monitor and there power has power you may be looking into another problem like a video card or a bad motherboard.
