"The system board displays a power failure (crowbar)": Is this a MB failure?

HP Recommended
ProDesk 400

When I boot w/ my HP power supply, I get no error messages and no BIOS and no POST, but the computer just... sits there.  The CPU fan pulses on for a millisecond, and goes off again, and repeats that indefinitely.


I think this is a power failure of the MB, (the above quote is from the beep codes) but I'm not sure what the word "crowbar" means in this context.
