My son bumped into my tower, didn't knock it over, just bumped it. It turned off when that happened. Since then, when I push the power button sometimes it weakly powers on for a few seconds then powers down, and sometimes it doesn't power at all. Any ideas/tips will be greatly appreciated. Running Windows 7 64-bit with a Gigabyte motherboard. Thank you

Have you opened up the computer and check all the power (and other) connectors to make sure they are firmly seated? Also checked the RAM and CPU and graphics card to make sure they are still seated correctly?

Check the CPU cooler to.  Some are easy to knock loose.
