Exclamation Power Cut

I've just recieved a partially working Iqon computer from my grandad, he said if i could fix it, I could have it.
The problem with it is that everytime the power is turned on, it'll power up for a second or two, and then turn off. I've replaced the PSU and put on a new Thermal interferance pad on the heatsink, but with no joy.
I'm positive it isn't the HD because i DID get it working at one point, and everything was fine, but when i downloaded a file from the internet, bam, it turns off. I've only managed this once, and i have a bad feeling (Funeral March) that everything has died as a result. It's worth the best try however, and no harm done if theres no solution and its busted.

Im not entirely sure of specs, as far as i have seen they are:
AMD Sempron 2800
Gigabyte Motherboard
256mb DDR Ram
80 Gig HD
Cd drive
Dvd drive
