power to fans but not hard drive

Desktop pc will power on intermittently using switch at power cord. Fans turn led lights at start and reset buttons light up and network card but no power in hard drive. Cannot switch off using power button must pull cable out. Checked all connections on mobo. Switches on when chooses, not right away and for no apparent reason. Can anyone advise

You need a new Good PSU, one that will handle the needs of the hardware

Fans don't require much power, so aren't a good indicator as to PSU health, I concur with woodchips suggestion.

thanks guys. so you suggest that the psu is faulty I guess you are correct since floppy or dvd drive have no power either
