    Hey Cyn,
    This could be a variety of things. I will need to know a little bit more about your computer to be able to answer your question better.
    1. How old is your computer?
    2. What is the brand/model name of your computer?
    3. Does anything come up on the screen at all or does it just turn on and then turn off?
    4. Does it have any strange beeping when you first turn it on?
    5. Have any hardware changes been made recently.

    If you can answer these We should be able to diagnose the issue more precisely.
