It could be just about anything without doing further investigation, but if it's totally dead I would guess the PSU has probably died so you need to remove it and fit a new one.

The PSU is the large metal box inside the case at the back, with all the connector wires coming from it. Easy to change, just make sure you get one that's at least the same output wattage as the existing one. Fitting a higher wattage one is even better as it means the PSU won't be working flat out all the time.

As stated by phil22, it could be caused by a failing power supply (aka PSU, or SMPS if you're from India). It could also be caused by overheating. Check the temp readings in the BIOS.

Download and install CPUID hardware monitor and use it to monitor temperatures and voltages in real time. That will help determine if the issue is related to heat or your power supply.

Get HWmonitor from the link below.
