Computer won't turn on.

After normal computer usage I turned off the unit completely and then turned off the surge protector. A couple of weeks later I unpluged the surge protector from the wall jack. After a few days I replugged in the power cord and tried to turn on the computer. The moniter and keyboard turned on by the computer didn't. The power light only flashed on for a second when I turned the computer switch off. I looked in the back and the fan went on briefly before turning off again. I unplugged everything and replugged and the same thing happened. I was told that it could be the power cord or the surge protector so I purchased new ones. After reinstalling the cords the same thing happened. I have no idea what my next step should be. Can anyone provide any insight as to what might be going on? Should I take it to a repair shop?

With the number of possibilities in this situation unless you are very familiar with the inner hardware of a computer I would recommend a qualified repair.
