It is probably the power supply. Swap it out with a known-working one.
If you need more help, please post back; however, please do not
capitalize every letter since that makes your post very hard to read.

The first thing I would suspect would be: Power Bar.........are you using
one?..if yes replace it
Power Supply
Unit............replace it
power
connection from PSU to mother board.check to see if it is loose
any error beeps??
What exactly does happen when you push that little power button on the front
of the computer?? the switch could be shot

Thank You For The Quick Answer, A Few Answers That You requested Or Questions:

What Is A Powerbar?

Their Are No error messages At All!

When I Push The power Button On My PC, Nothing Happens Most of the time,When
nothing happens I Usually try unplugging cords And waiting A Bit ,Fiddling
withthings and plugging the cords back in, Usually takes about an hour or
more to get it to turn on and then all is ok, sometimes it seems like when I
Push the power button that it almost turns on

I Disconeccted The power Cord From the back of the computer once and plugged
it back in and I Could hear the power or fan start For about one second and
then nothing

so from what you mention it could be the power switch or power supply but
which is the question

Their Are No loose Cables to the motherboard!

How can you test the power switch to know if it's bad

I Have A Compaq 7000Z - 7PLKII

I Have Posted Here Because I Have been unable to get A Reply From Compaq

Please use proper capitalization in your sentences. Capitlizing every
few words makes your post very hard on the eyes. I gave up after the
first sentence so I don't even know what the problem is or what you
have done to try and resolve it.
