PC Starts then Stops

My Other PC running Vista Ultimate having been the cause of so many problems (it's an Evesham) has now decided not to start properly. What happens when switching on it starts up then immediately switches OFF.Then the Blue on Light on Front of PVC just flashes .
Had so many Engineers look at it over the past 12 months I think I'll Dump it. When Evesham were up and running they had to install 3 new Hard Drives.

Any advise please before I dispose of the Machine would be appreciated.

Thank you

PSU would be a good place to start....

This problem solved I did what my Mother told me many many years ago LISTEN. This Machine is so quiet I could not tell if it was running. So i put my head against the Case and thought to myself it ain't running. So took the case off and lo and behold the Fan was running very slowly. It had a cable that had slipped rubbing against it. Turned all off checked the Cable put the case back on and all is AOK>
So although we used to moan at the time Mum was right and I must say she always was.
So if indoubt LISTEN
