Are you getting anything at all when you simply press and release the power button?
If you are getting a brief start and a fail, or if you are getting any errors or screen information then this matters. Please elaborate.

Perhaps you should test the power supply.

The system is getting heated up to hot environment. Make sure the CPU fan Running and also the cabinet fan running.
Also check the Power supply fan running, if the computer heats up then the system wont turn on.

Run Memtest86 to see if your memory is completely good, it runs off bootable CD (you burn ISO image to CD) so you have to make sure BIOS is set to boot to CD/DVD drive first. If you get errors, retest with one stick of memory at a time to verify the bad memory stick.
Use hard drive mfg's utility to test the hard drive (download).

Go to this page:
http://www.memtest86.com/download.html
Download the ISO image (windows-zip) which is the first blue link.
Unpack the ISO image from the zip folder (simply open the folder and Copy/paste onto desktop or in a new folder)
Use your burning software to burn a bootable CDr disk using the ISO disk image (do not just copy the files).
Set your BIOS to boot from your CD/DVD drive first (before hard drive), put in the disk, and restart the machine. On some machines you will need to 'hit any key to boot from CD' within a few seconds or it will skip back to the hard drive. The program will start itself, let it run all of the tests, unless you get any errors. If errors, retest with one stick of memory at a time. Replace if/as needed.
