Currently on my dads computer, but mine upstairs fails to turn on.

This morning it worked fine, I turned it off to go to school for roughly 6 hours, came back turned it on as usual and it turned off after 5 seconds on its own accord! I then pressed the switch on button and it shows on signs of life at all.

I mean what could be wrong? I've only left it for 6 hours. I've tried clearing any dust, tried other plug sockets, checked for loose cables and everything.

Any suggestions? Thanks:)

Does it show completely no signs of life: no noise from PSU/PSU fan?

Try checking/changing PSU first.

The button that I press has a light that turns on to indicate that the computer is on.
Not all the time but when I press it to see if it works the light comes on for a split second then it's off and then nothing.

Start with PSU changing then (if you're sure all connections are tight, including the power lines).

Its fixed now, found out the Power Unit has died and a new one has been installed :)
