First try the power supply. Shut down the computer and pull the power plug. let it set for a few mins. open the side case (left side), if its a tower. Facing the motherboard(mainboard) , inside you will see the power supply in the upper left corner , right? Follow the wires out of this PS and see if you can find a connector that is called a "molex connector"(a whitish plastis connector) with 4 wires going to it. The 2 black wires are ground( they are the inner wires to this connector). The yellow and red wires are the hot wires. The red wire should be plus 5 volts to ground and the yellow wire should be plus 12 volts to ground. tolerance, id say : plus or minus no more than 10 per cent, probably within 5 per cent..
Ill get back to you on the reset.
