Default noob with power problem

hey every one
first post to this forum and after some help
im most deffo a noob to the level of users on here

basicaly my computer is nothing special standard medion had it for a couple of years now, not even dual core

any way it was getting realy hot realy fast turns out it was the heat sync paste had gone crusty
i re applied the paste, put computer back together and now it turns on then off again after about 10 seconds

i have good contact with the heat sync and processor so thats not over heating

i thought the mo bord was shorting on the case so removed it from the case

i have put a new psu in and still have same problem

i have took the switch off and use a screwdriver to turn on so its not the switch

now i currently have the gpx card in, a stick of ram and hdd with mo bo out case and the problem still persists

if i unplug the 12v 4 pin connector the computer will power up, stay on but i have no out put to the screen

can any one suggest anything please?

tried taking batt out to reset bios that hasnt helped

also give the capacitors a good look over cant see any bulging or burns?

can it be the mo bo dead

right took batt out to reset bios and thats hasnt helped
