Default Computer Power Cuts Off, power on light flashing!?!

ok so im typing and bam the power just cuts off does what does this signify?
the power light will keep flashing after the power kills and then i can turn it back on cuz the power button and reset is not responding!
i have to switch off power supply then switch it back on, then press power?
i checked the motherboard for capicitors that are dead but everythings fine. i did just try to overclock my cpu but its only at 2.04ghz and i dont know what this could mean,
please help?,
Sean

complete specs would help a lot!!!

my guess is that your pc was either unstable or it overheated. but really would help to know your cpu to make a more accurate guess

2.04GHz is 2.04GHz no matter what way you look at it. for now i think perhaps take your processor back to stock speed and see if you can reproduce the problem. if not, problem is found and fixed

if not ill just keep that DFI board coming in on thursday. but what if its the powersupply?
is there any record of a psu causing such problem?
i posted my specs above and i need to know so i can figure if i should keep the new motherboard or return it for a hardrive, but if its the psu then ill return the new board for a new psu and ill be fine but i have to know what the problem is.
