Default power up problems

I have a Gateway GT4016, it is a few years old, when it has been powered off for a bit it doesn't want to power on right away, I have to hit the power switch on the front of the case about 50 times before it will boot, when I hit the power button on the front I hear the fan come on, and the little work light comes on briefly, about a second, then it goes off, after about 50 tries the little blue light on the power switch finally comes on and it boots normally. I just changed the power supply and it did not help, any ideas or solutions please?
