Question about HP Pavilion a1410n (ER890AA) PC Desktop
I push the button and nothing happens...we shut it down normally a week ago before we went out of town for a week and when we came home it would not turn on...we have never had a problem with the computer and it is about a year and a half old.
Most likely the power supply has failed. This is the device that the cord plugs into in the back of the computer. They can be purchased for around $20 - $50 depending on where you go. Then you just remove the four screws holding it in, remove all the internal plugins and reconnect the new power supply. Oh and please take a moment to rate this solution as fixya. Thanks! :c)

If you cant see or heard any boot up sounds, fans and especially if you dont see any power or green led lights at all ;
If your power cord is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, power cycle your strip or surge protector by turning off and on.
If power outlet has a wall switch make sure its on
Check that your power cable is securely plug in to both ends
Check that at the back of computer, specifically on the back of the power supply unit that the switch is on "1" position and NOT on the "0" position ( 1 is "ON" , 0 is "OFF" )
Check that the power outlet is not damaged by pluging in another good known device (such as a blowdryer, shaver, lamp, radio, etc, etc) to see if its the power outlet or not.
Can you see power or green led lights and hear the fan on but no display ? If this is the case , check your monitor connection at both ends. If they are secured open up your case and see if you can smell any burnt smell or check that all cards especially video cards are properly seated.
