what i might suggest is switching the reset button from the reset position on the mobo to the power switch position, that happened to my brother in law a while back, he took it to the shop an they told him to get him to buy a new box... but cheepy me told him to do just that and it works perfectly fine. just hit the reset button on the case to turn it on an off.
