Hi Folks, I've got a big problem with total boot failure on my PC, I'm hoping you guys can help. I'll start at the beginning. My computer was running normally when I decided to transfer some photo's, from my mobile phone to the computer, using the USB cable. I'd done this before with no problems, but on this occasion it was connecting and disconnecting very quickly, as if there was a loose connection or something. Anyway, the screen then froze and the computer was unresponsive so I hit the reset button to re-boot. This is where I'm having the major problem as the computer powers up and then powers down again after about 2 seconds, before the "beep". the screen doesn't come on and it never gets to the Bios, it just shuts down. All the fans are powering up, including the PSU's, for 2 seconds anyway. Can anyone help?

I just wanted to come back and finish this thread for anybody coming across it in the future. I ended up taking my PC to be tested at a local PC repair shop. I was hoping by then that it was the PSU that had gone. In actual fact, my Motherboards' USB controller had fried, meaning I had to buy a new motherboard! On the bright side though, I hadn't lost any files and am now back up and running. Thanks to everyone for their advice though.
