Probably there is no connection between your keyboard and mouse to the CPU. Check for proper connection of your keyboard and mouse. If the connection is good, probably there is the problem with the cord that is connected with your mouse or keyboard.
Turn off first your PC before making any connections.
After you confirmed that there is no problem with the connection, probably the problem is at your mouse or the keyboard itself.

Power button blinks, nothing powers on


A blinking power button generally means the computer is in sleep, hibernation type mode. If pressing keys or moving mouse does not wake the computer, PRESS AND HOLD THE POWER BUTTON IN FOR ABOUT 5 SECONDS. This will force the computer to shut off. Then press the button again and the computer should start up and go through the "restarting windows" routine. If your computer continually will not wake up from sleep, disable these modes in the Power settings of control panel. If you don't know how, post question stating operating system and someone will be able to give instructions, or you could just "google" for them.

How can I wake my computer from sleep or hibernation?

On most computers, you can resume working by pressing your computer's power button. However, not all computers are the same. You might be able to wake your computer by pressing any key on the keyboard, clicking a mouse button, or opening the lid on a laptop. Check the documentation that came with your computer or go to the manufacturer's website.
