could be.,,, any fan noise? (get close)

A power supply has three rails, 12volt, 5 volt, and 3.3 volt--anything with a motor uses the 12volt rail; memory video and cpu use the 3.3 volt rail and about the only thing that still uses a 5 volt rail is the power button. So, a power supply with a blown 12 and 3.3 volt rails will result in your problem....course, so will a few other things, like a fried CPU.....
