Default Blinking Power Button

My friend gave me his Compaq tower to fix, its relatively new (black/silver design, i forget the model #)

When I plug in the power cord, this thing has a light in that back of the power supply that blinks VERY fast, as does the actual green power button in the front. It does not turn on at all, just flashes the power button. Does this sound like a power supply issue, or possibly mainboard issue?

Thanks, need some opinions before I spend $40 for a P/S for him
