Did you move the computer around or open the computer to do some hardware updates? There might be a loose or improperly plugged in cord, or your PSU is dead. How old is this computer?
Who said I couldn't have everything?

To the best of my knowledge no new installs or movement. This is my daughters computer.

When she brought it to me, because of the problem, I did blow the inside and checked the connections and replaced the internal battery. I could not find any touching or loose connections. All the boards and memory are secure.

Thanks

Well, either your PSU is borked or your mobo doesn't like to turn on.

Well, you can buy another 300W PSU and see if it works-- or you can take a PSU from your computer to see if it works on hers. If you don't have any idea how to take the PSU out, here is a link for that:
