Does it make any different sounds when it is booting then it did before?  If so they can indicate specific problems.

 

Does it get far enough to start loading Window?  If so consider starting it in safe mode to see if it stays on longer so you can do some diagnostics as Cappy states above.

 

Did you make any significant changes prior to this happening?  Is so, and if running in safe mode helps, you could consider loading your last restore point.

Can you get to BIOS (EFI) when you boot it? If set for quick boot change it so it displays details of what is loading and see if you can see any issues.

 

While in BIOS check how everything is running and post here. 

 

Possible issues: PSU is not functioning correctly and may go soon.

                        CHeck temp of CPU in BIOS. May need heat sink reset or thermal grease re-done?

                       If you have a spare hard drive and/or boot disc (a linux one would be good) put the disc in and on boot up (if not set in BIOS) boot to disc and see if Linux or the WIndows disc will load and stay on screen).

                        Issue with start up button being stuck on your PC. (explain the 10 seconds). If possible take off the front cover and see how it goes when pushing, booting. 

 

If need can't get to boot screen to choose Safe Mode or into BIOS : Break your PC down to the basics and see if it boots with no Video card, no NW card, no extra HDD but the main one with OS/ (or CD-ROm Boot disc)  and even try 1 slot of Ram at a time). Test by substitution. 

 

Do you have a spare PSU? 

 

Just some ideas. Go for the easiest fixes first.
