Default power issue

Ihave been given a old tiny pc to have a look at as it does not switch on at all. so i have had i quick look at it it is a slot 1 cpu and a intel board.
i have put a used psu in that i know works just to try it and i can get power for about 3 seconds then it dies. but then if i switch on again nothing at all until i unplug then replug the 20 pin mobo conector back in. i suspect the mobo has had its day,but i just wondered what you guys thought before i tell the guy its dead as a dodo.Thanks in advance
