Default problem with the power supply

More than likely is a problem with the power supply. I would look for
the capacitors around the CPU socket to see if they are leaking (sort
a brownish reside) or swollen. If in deed this appears to be the case,
The CAPS can purchased and replaced. It takes extremely good soldering
skills a very low wattage iron and a lot of patience. You can also try
to find a GOOD PC repair shop and let them do it. Problem is that
finding a good repair shop is like trying to find a good doctor or
attorney. The cost to have someone else do it is probably more than
cost of a replacement main board.
