My pc was working alright for last 2 years but yesterday and today, it did not start by pressing power button, i unplugged power wires from motherboard and plugged in again three times then it worked. Also when cpu is standing it dont work, when it is lying horizantly it works, this is happening again and again. Sometimes fans will start but it will not boot up, whats the problem, i have not installed any new hardware
Im not a pro, but I did have the same sort of problem years back..
If you can borrow one, try switching out your power supply, yours may be weak. Or if you can get your hands on a power supply tester, that will tell you if full power is getting to the components.
Just for the heck of it, make sure there is nothing metal bouncing around underneath the mother board.
My problem was i needed a new power button - $3.95

or branded name such as Dell or HP etc, if it is please provide the model
name or number, this will enable others to help you better, providing your
MB information would also save a lot of time.
Do not try booting up again until the psu has been swapped out or tested correctly!

ciiindy was right to suggest swapping the psu out, it is is one of the first
things to do because if it fails completely it could take out the MB, CPU,
Ram and any add on cards for example.
Take notes of where all connections go from the psu before disconnecting,
if you have a digital camera take some photographs also.
Remember to disconnect the power cord from the wall and take anti static
precautions by touching a bare metal part of the case before touching anything
inside the case.
If you require further assistance I will be happy to help.
