Reset everything, computer was plugged into a surge protector. Other stuff plugged into surge protector is still working.
Is it a bad power supply?
Or does the cap need more time to charge before booting?

Only other thing i can think of is the capacitor charge dissipating while the power was out. Or the power supply coincidentally went bad at the same time.

I removed the PSU, cleaned a little dust out of the case and and then re-installed it. Plugged everything in and waited 5-10 minutes. Works like brand new.
