HELP !! PC sometime dead, restarts only after disconnecting everything

  1. Hi,

    hope my english is good enough, to describe, what I mean.

    I´ve made a PC using an elitegroup board.

    As long as PC is connected to power socket, everything works fine, and the
    PC starts, when I press the power-button.

    After disconneting power from PC, it happens, that after connecting again,
    nothing happens while pressing power-button. Most times I have to disconnect
    all parts (also the board) from mains. After connecting everything again, it
    works fine, until the time I disconnect power again.

    Hope, somebody knows. Is this a matter of board, not being ok?

    I had something like that twice,-not releated to the mobo, but it was in
    both cases a faulty ATX power supply!
    sometimes when I took off the CDrom it could not start,-I waited 10-15 min.
    then it worked...I replaced the PSU's (power supply units) everytime they
    started to behave 'strange'

    Check with another PSU for reference

  3. Already did that. No difference. Still if there is no power-connection it
    very often refuses to start.
    There also is a red LED on the board and very often, when this occurs, this
    LED is on before (PC is turne off at that time). Normally this LED should be
    off, when PC is off.
    I think it´s the board. But how can I be sure?
