My first guess would be your PSU is at fault. What do you mean by "try to unplug the cable of the hard drive and it booted just fine"? It booted without the hard drive? the primary boot drive..a spare boot drive? what cable did you unplug..the power cable, the sata cable?

One sign of a dying PSU is it will not power on every time you push the power button. But fans will spin, some lights may light up.

I would have it tested or test it myself. There are lots of guides out there to show you how to do this. Remember, the PSU powers everything in your PC. If it goes down, it can take other parts with it.
