Most likely it is a bad power supply but it is hard to tell for sure without swaping in a known good one, so before you run out and purchase a new one it would be a good idea to try another one if possible.
This sometimes could be other things like a mobo but I would start by trouble shooting the psu.
It is possible to test the psu if you have a digital volt meter but sometimes if the psu is flaky (fluctuating voltages) this is inconclusive so its best to try anther.

In order to get into setup, you need the machine to work, which it is not doing. Some machines are different, but many you press "DEL" when it is going through the startup tests.
Based on your quickly turning the power off, then on, it does suggest that the power supply is bad.
