If no warranty issues, take the cover off and see what happens when you flip the power switch. Does the CPU fan go on? How clean is everything? Lots of dust?

When this happened to me it was because of a bad motherboard. One of the internal metal fibers was broken.

Has anyone been inside your computer lately? Have you done any work on the motherboard lately?

If so, you probably need a new motherboard. :(
