Is this a new build? If so, you may have the case to board wiring wrong.

The power button will work if you hold it down for 4-5 seconds.

As requested, provide some history. If it was working perviously did anything happen to it or did you make any changes between the last time it worked OK and the first time it didn't?

Not to be too general but it's likely the power supply or motherboard.
