I don't understand what you wrote: you will have to "manually go and turn it on"? How is that to be understood? Did you manage to get the power on after all?

Do you have a meter that you can check the voltages on your Power Supply?
Is there green light on your motherboard that is lit?
What happens when you unplug everything from the wall - then plug the computer back in and press the power button. Any clicks or beeps?
