Also, depending on whether your power went down "clean" (quick and stayed off), or went down and quickly came back on and off many times. Or when it came back on "clean" (came back on quick and stayed on), or it came on then off many times, your power supply may have been damaged from the power surges Are you having any problems with any other appliances?

Depending on how long the power was off, your desktop power supply circuit capacitors may have fully discharged during the power outage. This will effect how fast your computer will turn on when you press the power button. Turning off the power by pulling the cord, or a power outage while the computer was on will usually result in a message that Windows was not shut down down properly when you try to restart it. Also make sure your computer isn't plugged into a 'switched' receptacle that's wired to turn on a table lamp etc from a wall switch. It's usually the bottom half of the receptacle that's switched while the top plug is always 'hot' or powered and unswitched in a wall switch controlled recepacle situatation.
Have you ever cleaned (did a maintenance) during the past six months? As we need to take bath, machines also need to be cleaned. Blow away all the dust and dirt from the motherboard, ad-on cards, connectors, ram, heatsink, cup fan, power supply,etc. and check whether it helps or not. Also run a full system scan using an updated antivirus. Good luck.
Most likely your laptop is going into sleep mode. Lots of them do not like sleep mode if nothing happens when you push the power button try to hold it down for about 5 sec. your computer should power off and then you can start as normal. If this problem persists change the options in your control panel to turn sleep mode off. That should solve it.
You can connect the monitor to the laptop only if your laptop has a VGA plug and the monitor has the right connector. The connector on the laptop it's usually blue in the center with 15 holes. If your not sure please post your type of laptop model and I will check it out and guide you to your connector.
If you succeed in connecting the screen turn your monitor on and turn laptop on. I know you will say nothing happens on screen, and that's because you need to hold down on the "FN" or function key and press "F4" at the same time, only once. If Nothing happens try again. Know your monitor on laptop will shut off if the screen does turn on, it's normal. Please let me know if you have any luck!
If it only 6 month sold send it back to the store you brought it from as you should have a 1 year warranty with it. The other thing is when you switch the computer on does the power light come on and nothing happens? If so then the CPU could be out of it's socket slightly which this will have nothing to do with the power supply.
I suggest if you have had it from new send it back to the store if you purchased second hand open the cover detach the CPU fan and lift the release lever and push down on the CPU and close the release lever then replace the CPU fan and cover then try switching on.
