PC won't turn on

Hi, hopefully a quick one, my computer won't turn on unless it has been unplugged from the mains for a short while. Any ideas, I would rather not have to post it back to the manufacturer for this.

May be a PSU problem.

Still suggest you to contact the manufacturer if it's under warranty because any further action taken might void it.

Unplug the computer from the mains. Press the computer start button for 30 seconds to discharge the cmos charge. Reconnect power suppy lead and start the computer.
