    ABIT Fatality an8 sli mobo, 1GB DDR, 430 WATT Antec PSU

    All of a sudden a week ago I come to switch the PC on from the power button
    on the Case and nothing. I can see the mobo illuminated red from its onboard
    mobo lighting so there is power to the PC. I have to keep pressing the
    button about 30 times or keep pulling the plug and replacing and it
    eventually spotaneously boots up. Also when I click START>SHUTDOWN, it
    actually shuts down the pc fully, and as soon as the fans are powering down
    it spontaneoulsy powers up the pc again.

    Any ideas this is driving me mad.
