    Maybe you have a failing power supply, that would explain the power up issues. Looks like it uses a standard ATX power supply for wiring and size.

    Well something is wrong and the power supply is one of the more likely culprits, it could be the motherboard buts that harder and more expensive to fix.

    I agree with Triple, as a psu is failing, some of the time you will have boot failures as you are.
