Perhaps there is something wrong with the power button itself, maybe it's sticky or something, try taking a look-see at that
after my HP broke for the final time last year i cried and sobbed and i can never get over the fact that it was all my fault for breaking it, however i soon have a new pc and just when i thought things would be smoth sail from here on i realized iw as dead stop wrong.
last night when i click on "logged out" in the start menu, something unforgiving happened.
the instant i click on "log out" in windows, my screen went blank.
my pc starts flicking on and off then on and off like mad, i can tell by looking at the power indicator light in front of my pc, in other words:
my pc RAPIDLY....
-then on again
-then off again.
-this on-and-off thing went on 10 times straight non stop, i panicked so i push the power button to turn it off.
i then restart it and my pc butit failed to boot, it didn't beep at me like my old broken HP, but even after i restart it a couple of times, it still fails to boot, nothing but a blank screen and the busy singnal light keeps flashing at me.
i also notice something strange, when i flick the little switch on the back of my pc to turn it completely off, my keyboard still has it's lights on, i don't understand what's happening, i'm really stress right now.
i activate ASUS pc probe and it flashs a warning telling me that my "chasis fan is not spinning or deactivated".
i went on to check all three of the fans and they seem to be working because i can feel the wind coming out of it, although the wind seem abit warm, the cpu, cpu and other fans and everything else is alright.
after a few failed boots my pc finally came back to life and it boots up as usual, but i'm so very worried.
so really what's happening to my pc, will my pc be damaged by 10 times of flicking on and off? is my hd damage? is my motherboard damage? vega card? oh i don't know i don't know!;(

-ASUS P5RD1-VM-UAYZ- motherboard
80gb SATA hitachi HD

please, help me, i'm not trying to show off or tell you lies or cause any disorder i just need your help, please help me i don't want to make the same mistake of my old hp to repeat again, please help me, please...;(;(;(
i cried all night long last night, i couldn't sleep, it was just like last year, it was just like last year, my old hp did the same thing the last time it broke, i push the power button while it was booting and it flicks on and off and on and off like mad and it fried the mother board and cpu, i thought my nightmare was over, i was wrong, i was wrong, the same thing is happening again.
everything including my cpu/hardrive/gf6600/motherboard...etc
it's all ruin and badly damage, right?
