I have a weird problem in my desktop. I have been using it for more than one year. Problem occurs from last week.

Sometimes when I try to turn on my pc when I press the ON button just the green light alone will be glowing and red light will never come. Nothing will happen after that. I waited for ten minutes still it is the same.

Also this happens 2 out of 5 times not always.. Also same problem sometimes occurs even the system is switched ON.. When I leave the computer turned ON for 15mins or so without using it.. Consider listening to songs suddenly after 15mins or so system will go blank and song will stop just green light will be glowing in CPU

**Note :** I turned OFF hibernate and sleep still no use

Workaround is :
If I switch off my power supply and turn it on immediately then it will restart and work.. This could spoil my hardware.. Can somebody help me on this..

Is this a one year old PC , or older ? HDD or SSD ?
It could be a HDD , not spinning up on cold boot or after a spin down. It does sound more like a PSU problem.

If fans aren't even turning on, then yeah, sounds like a power supply going bad.
