Default Power up problem

I have two HP computers that are exactly the same. The one suddenly would not power up until several tries. Now it won't power up at all. If I pull the power cord and re-insert it, the fan starts and it looks like it is going to start, but after five or ten seconds it shuts down. The other computer started to do the same thing but I finally got it booted. Now I never shut it down. I let it go into hibernation and have not had a problem since. The first one still has the problem.I tried a new power supply. Some solutions I have read talk about doing things in the CMOS but I can't get that far. Thanking anyone in advance for any help I get, I am,
