Default i need some help

so i ways in my room, using my computer, and it was OC'ed by the MSI D.O.T by 10%. I was playing GRID, then suddenly my computer shut down. I tried turning it back on but it wont turn on. I unplugged the power cable in the back, replugged it back in in about 10 min with the CMOS battery out. then when i try to power on again, it like starts up for a split second, then it shuts down. I know it opes a split second because when i power on my computer, the LED fans lights up for the split second.
anybody know what wrong?
thanks in advance

did that, no luck.
i went to my friends house to get my old computer, and switched the PSU because i was curious, and it turns out it is the PSU.
so my computer lives! YAY!
