I was given an older hp pc which won't post if I hold down the power button the lights and fans power up but as soon as I release the power button it shuts down , I have also bypassed the power button to make sure that wasn't the problem.

he was getting system fan errors before this happen and the rear case fan kind of pulses

From my exp thats generally the mobo is shot. With a faulty psu being a close second.

Check psu -> the move on to mobo.

Usually that behaviour indicates the mobo is gone. Would you like a DFI mobo with 8 GB of RAM and a quad core CPU? :)

that is the next thing I am thinking but I am really thinking it is the Motherboard because I remember him telling me that his PSU went with a pop which then he brought his PC over for me to look at last year . so I guess I will snoop around for a old AM2 or AM# motherboard lol
