Default Problem with turning off computer and...

My bro's comp wouldn't turn on so I unplugged it and plugged it back. This time it did turn on but nothing on screen just blank. Now when I hold the power switch to turn it off it doesn't. The only way to turn it off was for me to pull the plug. Can someone please help?

Maybe the cable that connects the power interface pins on your mobo is loose. Makes sure everything is firmly seated on the mobo that connects it to the case. If everything is fine, try using a paperclip to short the appropriate pins and see if the mobo is doing what it should be doing. If not, you're having mobo trouble.

Also the only way to turn it on is to plug it in the outlet, without pressing the on switch. Also my bro's computer is like 7-8 years old, could this be a factor? And can you explain "try using a paperclip to short the appropriate pins and see if the mobo is doing what it should be doing. If not, you're having mobo trouble." a little more because I don't understand.
