Sounds to me like your Power Supply is pretty much dead
Mine died last week.

I wouldn't turn it on again, as it could be shorting and could be causing damage to the components, if it hasn't already, and I hope it hasn't.

Have you got a spare power supply you could plug up to test it?

Yep, sounds to me like a classic case of a dead/dying power supply. The one in my old computer did the same thing, it went on and off a few times and then completely died. Luckily it didn't take any of my other components with it.
