My city had a power outage yesterday, and now the computer won't turn on at all. I've had this happen on a work computer in the past, and it ended up being the power supply, which was a fairly easy fix. In that instance, when pressing the power button I at least got the flashing green light to appear on the button. This time I get absolutely nothing. Could it be the same issue, and if not, what other problems might I be looking at?
I'm hoping nothing major as I've read on a few strings that a sudden absence of power shouldn't damage your computer.

you need to take the computer apart and start with the power supply to see if it's still operational. If the ps still works, then connect it to the motherboard (outside of the computer) and see if you can get it to POST with a screen connected to the video port.
