Check to a different outlet
does it hit the BIOS screen? if blank, and no power
most likely its your power supply. if you post this question again you should add a little more details about the issues

Power light on back of Inspiron 518 is on but computer will not start by pushing start button on front panel.

Things to check !..
1st check the CPU fan to be functional cause its failure will lead to this behavior .
2nd check the ram memory ...If it has issues with the ram memory it may not boot at all ..or try to boot but only the fan will start and will make some warning beeps and go in a starting loop ..
3rd is a CPU failure..In this case the computer may start or not ..and in case it starts only the CPU will spin ..but nothing on screen .
In the last case check the wires from the source to the board ...the plugs to be well inserted and the source itself ..(measure ti with something ..or use it in another computer to see if ti is functional ..
Please rate my answer if it helps..have a good day !

Inspiron 518 sometimes won't shut down. It hangs up when it says "shutting down'. When this happens, I need to shut down at the power strip. I've alrady replaced the power supply once, probably...

the power outages may have destroyed a part in the pc or corrupted somthing on the hard drive....try to turn it off before windows starts booting if it shuts down fine its your hard drive which means you may need to reinstall windows

Try and find a matching power supply that you can use to replace it with just to confirm it is the dead component 2. Your motherboard could have experienced a short circuit that spoiled the circuitry of the board...
