Default Computer Stuck On

My computer is frozen on, frozen as in its ON but nothing shows up on its screen. The only way it will turn off is to hit the switch in the back or unplug the power cord. I've tried holding the button in the front in, using different power cables etc...never had this problem with my pc before, kinda weird. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

resetting the cmos might do the trick
1) theres a jumper near the battery, while the pc is off put it to pins 2-3 for about 10 seconds then put back to pins 1-2 and power up
2) disconnect the power cord from the psu (that cable thats between the wall socket to the psu) and get the battery out for 30 minutes then put it back and connect the power cord and power up

if #1 didnt work for you then try #2 , anyway after its done and you see somethin on screen if you see a message like "cmos checksum error" then get into the bios and load optimized/performance/setup defaults and save & exit

edit its also possible the mobo/case power button at fault check for bad capacitors
