Computer will not start

I did not build this computer ... but I am trying to fix it. The
computer is a custom build.
I have an Altec SLK1650 case. I am trying to track down a problem.
If I can get the computer to start the computer works fine. When I
press the button to start the computer it will make the appropriate
sounds but within 1 second the computer dies. If I press the start
button repeatedly it will act like it is going to start for
progressively longer times until it finally it continues running. At
this point the operating system is not running but the fans are
running. I then push the reset button and then the computer start
starts normally. I replaced the power supply (350W) with a 450W but
that did not help. At this point the computer will not start at
all. If I hold the reset button in and press the start button the
computer will sound like it is running but will not boot. When I
release the reset button the computer dies. Just wondering if it
might have something to do with the start or reset buttons. Any
suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance for the help ... Michael
You didn't describe the hardware. Make sure the CMOS jumper is set
I would assume that the CMOS jumper is set properly because the
machine has worked and nothing was changed.
