When did it start? Have you tried plugging your PC into the wall directly? Also try removing cd/dvd drives and leave just the main mobo/gpu and HDD attached to the power. If it starts up right away it may be that you have a bad PSU.

If it just started, I would also suspect your PSU is getting weak or about to quit working.

Might also be that the power button's innards have sunk into the frame a little too far so that proper contact is not being made when tapped,,they are very fragile/cheap after all,you would have to remove the facia and check and some of them are covered/locked in with hot glue which degrades over time with the expected results..
BTW reset and power buttons are the same,momentary switches..:)
