When I tried to switch the computer back on, the fans and lights come on for a half a second, then it all switches off again. If I try and switch it on again after this, nothing happens. If I turn off the power to the case, then turn it back on 30 seconds later, I get the same result as the first time - fans, lights for half a second, then nothing.
I've had a similar problem in the past, where the computer would switch on, then switch off again, and I didnt have the CPU properly installed. Fixed the CPU and it all worked fine.
Has anyone else had a similar problem, or can anyone shed any light on which piece of hardware it is that may be causing these problems?

I actually recall when I had my last CPU problem that the mobo would beep before it shutdown. This time no beep so that leads me to think its either mobo or PSU problem.
Ill give it a clean when I get home, and if that doesnt work Ill try another PSU.

Coolermaster extremepower 550W, I actually bought a Thermaltake 550, but when I got it home I noticed they had given me the wrong one. Not much difference in price, but Im not sure about Coolermaster, do they make reasonable PSUs?
Im not too bothered though, its my crappy machine and Im not looking to spend a whole lot of cash.
