I built a HTPC100 with a FoxConn 760GxK8MB motherboard and a Sempron 2800+ CPU a few months ago. The machine was set up to go into standby mode after 30 minutes and it had been doing that just fine for months. To wake it up, I would just press the power button or move the mouse. Everything worked fine. However, just a few hours ago, I tried to press the power button and got no response. I went ahead and unplugged the computer, and when I plugged it back it, the fan started, and it looked like it was starting its boot sequence. However, after the beep, it simply turned itself off before going into POST. Pressing the power button does not have any effect. The only thing I can do, is unplug the computer, wait for 15 sec or so, and when I plug it in, without pressing the power button, it starts the boot sequence, and again, at the beep, it turns itself off.
At this point I have no idea what could be happening or where the problem might be. I would greatly appreciate it if you could help me in any way.
