Hi All this is my first posting so please be kind if it's in the wrong place.
I have a 6 or 7 year old approx' Fujitsu Siemens desktop which is used for basic email and web browsing, kids homework, along with keeping ipods updated etc.
The system was shut down fully one evening as normal and when it was attempted to start it again the next day it did not boot up.
The power was there but when you pressed the start button the fan kicked in and then cut out repeatedly and continued to do so if you held in the power button.
I had a look under the cover and tried removing and reconnecting some of the power cables to various components and also replaced the battery on the mother board trying to find a solution but obviously no joy.
My first thought is that it is a power supply problem somewhere but it seems it is beyond my very basic knowledge.
Is there anyone out there who could point me in the right direction please.

Old and slow I know but it did do a job until a couple of days ago.
