    My friend has an old no-brand win98 machine, which had worked fine for
    the past 3 years until yesterday it stopped working. When she pressed
    power switch, the power supply would lasts for about 2 seconds, then
    switched off automatically. I can see the CPU fan and PSU fan both
    running. Afterwards, it won't start at all if press power switch
    again. The machine was connected to a power strip, and she had to
    turn off and on the switch on the strip before getting that 2 seconds
    power supply again. Any help is appreciated.
