When you say will not start,does it post(beep) and the fans start whirring or is there just nothing ?
If it is the latter then after checking it is all connected properly it still doesn't start then it is most likely is a dead PSU
If it is the former you will need to count the number of beeps it emits when posting and refer to your motherboard manual for the error code.

I agree sounds like a dead psu,if the pc has not been opened or moved recently I would doubt a loose connection,Most likley the psu,How old is the pc and is there no one you know who can look at it for you.
