I faced exactly the same problem around 1 week back. It happens when your phone completely runs out of battery.

What i did was continuosly pressing the volume up and power key while charging it. When this thing also failed i connected it to pc and then it suddenly started. Smiling Face with open mouth & closed EyesDizzy Face

The permanent solution to this is to charge often...and never let your battery drain completely.(Neways draining your battery frequently will shorten its life)
