I am trying to start my PC by pressing the power switch, but it doesn't start-up. As long as I keep the power switch pressed the power and hard-disk LED's at the front of my Cabinet keep blinking, but the machine doesn't power on.
This used to happen earlier too, whenever I tried to start my computer after a while after it was powered down. However, then after I throw the main switch on and left it and tried after 5-10 minutes the PC used to start-up. If I tried to start it immediately, I would encounter the no-start-only-LED-blink problem. After 5-10 mins, it would start up. Now, it isn't powering on at all - the lights just keep blinking as long as the switch is pressed.
I opened my box and saw that the motherboard light was on. I disconnected the peripherals (HDD, DVD drive etc) and tried but to no avail.
My machine is a P4 - 2.4Ghz processor.
Any help with this would be highly appreciated.
