Was it exposed to liquid, dropped or otherwise physically mishandled?

If not, then the first thing I'd do would be an SMC reset: Intel-based Macs: Resetting the System Management Controller (SMC)

If that doesn't do it, a PRAM reset might be in order: About NVRAM and PRAM

Can you be more specific about the machine type? Approximate age and specs would be helpful.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
