Any luck finding an answer? I've got same issue. Following removal of power, press the power button and it tries to start for about a quarter second and turns off. Usually can get it up after an hour or so of playing with it and then it's fine until the next time I remove power. Tried Tech Support while still under warranty to get a new PSU, they indicated nothing was wrong- it was MY fault for not physically unplugging the PC every night- "for the betterment of the computer's health" were his exact words as I remember. Holding the power button in for 60 seconds with everything unplugged was another thing they'd recommended this also doesn't work. I suppose in another 45 minutes it will magically start up, I'll leave it plugged in for 6 months and then run into this again when I have to rearrange cords.
