Default Computer won't boot!!!!!

I have just run into a wierd problem. I left for vacation a week ago, and my computer was working without any problems. I shut down the computer before i left and when i returned the computer won't even boot. The power supply won't even come on.

Does anyone have any suggestions?? This happened before, but i just purchased a new Power supply and problem was solved. It seems odd to have my PS go on me everytime the system is shut down for longer periods of time.

Can someone give me suggestions? Thanks in advance

check your voltage switch its on the back of the power supply try flipping it to the other side. if this doesnt work try going inside the case and see if the motherboard is getting power. you may have a bad power supply worst case you buy a new one. make sure its plugged into a working outlet (it sounds silly but this happens alot. also check to see if your power switch is still connected. good luck i know how this feels
