You've verified it's plugged into an active wall socket? And no one messed with it in the 4 days it was off?

The power supply is the most likely culprit.

I have a computer in the garage that follows the following rules.

When on, it creates heat. (a lot of heat)
When parts heat up, they expand.
If run 24/7 for a week and turned off for a day it will not start.

Because as it cools the parts contract.
When fully contracted they loose their connection.

I admit it's an old clunker, but you may want to open the case, after unplugging it and check...wiggle all the connections.

Just a thought.
