Default Computer WONT EVEN START UP!

Hey guys, I've encountered another problem w/ my computer. Now, when I press the power button, nothing happens, a few minutes before; it would boot but nothing would appear on the screen (I would hear the BEEP boot sound) and then if i moved my mouse, strange things appear and get off of the screen; so I opened the case to check if anything was wrong, but now when i press the power button the CPU fan goes on for 3 seconds then turns off and nothing happens, no boot or anything... could it perhaps be the power supply?

My computer:
Intel P4 HT 3.2 GHZ Prescott
ATI Radeon 9800
1.5G corsair DDR1 ram

Please help!!!

It could certainly be the power supply. See if you can borrow one to check it out.

My sister's computer did this, and it was just a bad power supply.

Intel Q9400 | Gigabyte EP45-UD3P | G.Skill 2x2GB DDR2 1000 | XFX HD5870
