PC doesnt boot up

Looking for some help, my pc was working fine on tuesday and when i tried it yesterday it would power up, cpu and case fan would power on, drives and hard drive power on and then powers off. I get no POST beeps and then does the same thing again itself.

Also when i unplugged power cable and plugged it in again it tripped the power for the house. Do you think its a faulty PSU?

Faulty PSU - most likely yes!

It would be the first thing to try.

I agree with above, you could check that all power connections are seated tightly but as Technotiger and chub_tor have posted a faulty psu is likely.
Changing a psu is relatively simple,have a look here:click here
