    After shutting down my computer, it will not start again unless I switch the power supply off and then on again. It doesn't matter how I shut down. I've tried every combination of power settings in CMOS with no result. Does anyone have any ideas.

    Make sure the switch is good and the wires to the MB haven't come loose.

    You can make the computer power up by momentarily shorting the two power button pins on the MB with a pen, pocket knife, screw driver etc. Try to short just the two power pins...

    Sorry about the delay in responding. Thanks to everyone. It turned out to be a bad PS.
