Computer Startup

I have a computer that would NOT start.
This is a very ... open question, there are an infinite of possibilities, but if anyone can tell me my most... common ones, that would be very much appreciated

Tell us more. Describe what happens in detail when you press the power switch.

When i press the Power Switch, the computer doesent turn on. I tried removing the power supply and then it turned on for about a second and turned off.

Power Supply

Sounds to me like a bad power supply.

Or, depending on the model, a bad motherboard which tells the P/S to turn on.

What do you mean by "removing the power supply"?

It would help your cause in this forum if you would post the make & model of the computer.
