Pull the plug. Open the case and trace the wires form the front panel to the motherboard. If you have a manual for your motherboard it will help you identify the power switch wires. Carefully remove the wires, if you have a Reset switch, carefully remove these wires as well.

With the case still open, plug in and using a small screwdriver short out the power pins briefly. If PC starts then your power switch is broken, quick fix, use the reset switch by connecting reset wires to power pins.

If it started OK then it is the power switch on the case that is shorting out. Quick fix is to use the reset switch. if you have one as the power switch.

Proper fix will involve removing front of case, remove power switch, find a replacement, try Maplin, and put it all back together.
