Do you have a spare power supply to try?

have you tried a spare power supply? Process of elimination.

The issue would seem to be is this a hardware or software problem.

Before you buy a new computer, how can you sort this out? In a previous post you mentioned that the computer fan did not turn off when the computer was switched off, but would stop if the power was removed by unplugging the computer. This suggests a hardware problem. To prove this try booting your computer from a Linux live CD. That way you exlude the HDD (and its software contents). A persistent problem strongly points to a motherboard problem or possibly the power supply problem.

Invest in an inexpensive power supply tester. Either that or keep a spare power supply on hand for these situations. I would opt for the tester.
