PSU might be dead. Any beeps? (or does it not even make it that far?) I wouldn't try to start it over and over and over. Any reputable computer repair shop can check to see if the PSU is toast quickly.

Have you tried the paperclip test?

I let it sit for a while and it came on so I’m not sure it working now I just don’t know why it did that
