    Yesterday after I woke up wanting to switch on my PC, it failed to power-on. So I reconnected the power cord several times, later it works. Everything as normal. I felt it might be a sign of something more to come. And this morning when I tried to power on, it happened again and now I cannot even switch it on.

    The back of my PC PSU has this green light, I believe indicating there is power supply. Initially my router did not show any light on the cable indicating that it has connection, (because normally when there is electricity flow, it will alreayd light up without me having to power on).... 10 minutes later, my router showed that light. But still I am unable to power on.

    How should I go about to troubleshoot this problem?

    Assuming you use one the first thing I would be checking is the powerboard you are using. If the computer was the only thing that didn't power up then I'd be looking at the computer's PSU but when peripheral items like your router don't fire up then it must be something to do with your AC power source (either faulty power point or faulty power board).
