This was an older computer..One day computer just shut off by itself. Could not get it to power up?? Switched power supplies to a different one and this is where the craziness began.

If the computer has been sitting for a few hours it will start to boot up for about 20 seconds then just power off completely.

A quick restart will now only boot for 10 seconds.... maybe then again just shuts down completely?

I am thinking an electrical issue? But where? MB?? i have removed every connected peripheral but doesn't change anything?

Any Ideas? Thanks...Oh I have tried different HD but still does the same exact thing.

sounds like the MB to me. You should also try going down to one stick of ram (if you have two).
