It is very surprising but true thet when i shutdown my PC but doesnt unplug the power cabel (even if i had switched off) then i my PC doesnt get started next time. I need to unplug power cable for 2 Hrs then only i can start it.

I had changed my house I had changed motherboard, CPU & RAM

I am not able to identify the issue. And how can i resolve it.

Please suggest.

Have you tested your power supply? Buy a power supply tester (good to have one in general anyway) and make sure your power supply is operating correctly.

Are you certain there is nothing about the way the board is installed in the case that is causing it to short out? This just screams of a power related issue, I'd check the grounding and make sure everything is good. – MaQleod Oct 1 '10 at 8:33
This was mother board problem only. – Amit Gupta May 8 '11 at 13:27
