Default My computer won't turn on after being shut off until I unplug it & plug back in.

My computer won't turn on after being shut off until I unplug cord and plug back in! I know there are many things it could be but I will explain a little of the situation. It started about a little while ago when I came to turn the computer on. It would not start. I unplugged the computer and pressed the power button and it started. I have been doing some experimenting and found this out.
On the mobod there are three little blue lights. When I push the power button one of the blue lights will come on and not the other two and it won't start. I then unplug the cord and the blue light goes out after about 5 seconds. I plug it back in and push power and it starts. It runs fine when on.
It is and Epox mobod with an antec case and a 350watt smart psu.
Has anyone experienced anything like this?

well, its prossibly the PSU dying or not giving enough power to start.
try pullin out a PSU from the other system (the Fortron Blue storm 500w) and see if the issue continues

if i where u i'd switch the PSU ASAP before u fry ur mobo from switching on/off so many times
