Based on what you have said, I would personally suspect the power supply. While the old power supply might have damaged the machine, that would not explain why it would work of sitting powered up for several hours. You could check to see what the voltages are from the power supply, if you have a meter. This will help, but it will not tell you if the power is clean.

The first thing I would try is to replace the power supply and see if it works. Don't assume that just because the power supply is new that it is working correctly.

No, the PSU is working OK... checked with different PC + different PSU makes the same
(Rem: With the new one or with different I still can always open CD tray etc... if there is no signal on monitor it's the same)
