First of all my specs are:
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 https://www.amd.com/en/products/cpu/amd-ryzen-5-3600
GPU: GeForce GTX 1060 https://www.nvidia.com/en-in/geforce/products/10series/geforce-gtx-1060/
RAM: DDR4-3200MHz 16GB (2x8GB) https://www.gskill.com/product/165/184/1536110676/F4-3200C16D-16GVKBRipjaws-VDDR4-3200MHz-CL16-18-18-38-1.35V16GB-(2x8GB)
Motherboard: GIGABYTE B450M DS3H https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/B450M-DS3H-rev-1x#kf
PSU: HEXA+ 500W https://www.fsplifestyle.com/PROP161000099/
SSD: Samsung 970 EVO plus PCIe NVME M.2 https://www.samsung.com/us/computing/memory-storage/solid-state-drives/ssd-970-evo-plus-nvme-m-2-1-tb-mz-v7s1t0b-am/

Last night I was playing Destiny 2 with some friends then shut down my PC as normal and went to sleep. The next morning when I tried to boot it up nothing happened. When I push the button there is no response form my computer as far as I can tell. I have noticed that when it is plugged into power, the GPU white light while still remain on.

My PC was originally pre-built and I got it around 3 years ago but I changed out my GPU around 2 years ago and my CPU, RAM, SSD and motherboard around a year ago. I think its weird that one of my parts have broken already. I've noticed that in the recent past my PC has been having stuttering problems around 3 times a day where for around 20 seconds my PC will freeze or run very slowly while looping the same 2 seconds of sound over and over. I think this may be a CPU issue and perhaps my CPU decided to end itself while I was sleeping last night but I don't know how to confirm my suspicions.

So far I have tried:
  1. swapping the reset and power button wires around to make the reset button act as the on button.
  2. Unplugging the wires on my motherboard and plugging them back in again.
  3. Using a different power socket in the wall.
  4. Using a different power cable.
  5. Holding a screwdriver to the power on screws to start it.
  6. Unplugging all my peripherals and trying the above.
So far no result for getting my PC to start. Any troubleshooting steps from you guys would help a lot thanks
