I know how you feel when there are computer problems. It is a real pain. Here are three suggestions.

First, make sure that the computer is plugged in. This might be obvious, but check anyway.

Second, if it is a laptop, sometimes it takes time to work, even if it is plugged in. When the battery is dead, then it takes a few minutes to get back to working. So, be patient.

Third, if these all fail, check to see if the outlet is operational. Try to plug in something else and see if it work. Perhaps there was a short in the electric.

Finally, if all else fails, then you probably need to bring your computer in for repairs. It means that something internal to your computer is broken.
