    It could be that your button isn't working. This happened to my mom and she had to send it in for repairs. You may not have noticed that it doesn't work if your computer is always on and you never have to use the button.

    That actually might be it cause I always leave my computer on. Thanks for the help.

    Haha I feel dumb for not thinking about that

    the problem with HP, DELL, and all those other standard desktop cases is that they are pieces of sh*t. The power buttons often die off. An easy way to test this is to pop the front of the case off and make sure the button is alligned right and then try powering up again. If it still dont work you can try this.

    You will however need a jumper. The little computer part used to connect two pins. Find were the power button assembly connects to the mother board. Find the one that specifically is for the power button. Then pull that tab off and use your jumper to connect the two pins. This is a way to start the PC without a power button. I would be careful tho.
