Weird pc boosting problem need to unplug and plug

Hi to PC gurus

Recently my pc has been acting weird, let me explain the situation in steps

I use my pc as normal everyday but this just happened

I turn my pc on and once I turn it off and try to start it up again it will just shut down immediately, like not even 0.5 sec that the led lights shows up and so I try pulling the plug out and leave it for 10-20sec, plug it back in and it would start up and be able to use my pc as normal but once I turn it off again it won't boot up until I pull out the plug and repeat the process of pulling the plug out and wait 10-20 secs again.

could it be that the mainboard is faulty? or power supply is old?

Thanks in advance!

power off unplug

press and hold power button for 30 seconds.

reconnect power and boot up.

see if that solves the problem.

It could be something with the PSU. I've experience the same problem with my PC after 2 weeks in holiday and after a few restarts like this for the course of 2-3 hours it started working again. It started by restarting after 5s and gradually worked up till it staid on. In my situation I suspect the PSU but didn't get the time to change it as it work OK :)
