I am a computer builder / engineer and I have had this problem a few times over the years.
Have you tried replacing the PSU ? That is the most obvious starting point.
Cheap, and simple 10 minute diy job, only 4 screws hold the unit in place and all the cables will only connect / reconnect in the right holes so nothing to worry about, you could also take your "Old" unit to the shop with you and they should be able to test it for you.
If this doesnt solve your problem then it is most likely a heat issue which is better dealt with by a qualified technician.
I hope this helps,

That particular failure is power supply related. The voltage regulators fail in such a manner that they need to have ALL power removed to reset them. It may also be heat related and the offending device could be tracked sown with a can of freeze spray, but beware, there is lethal voltages present inside the power supply case, Don't attempt unless you have a death wish.
