"Computer doesn't start up at all."

1.Check to ensure that the power cords and power strip are firmly connected. Check all cable and power connections. Restart the power strip if you have one.
2.Is there electricity? Is the power strip on? Is the monitor on? Is the hard drive on?
3.Does either the monitor, or computer green light come on? Does the monitor light come on green at all, even briefly, or is it orange?
4.Do you hear the hard drive start up?
5.Do you get error messages? If you do get error messages write them down-thoroughly.
6.When did it last work?
7.What was the last thing you did before shutting it down?
8.Did you install new software, or hardware? Did you delete any files?
