Ok well I am looking into borrowing a replacement, but if nobody has one then I have hit a wall. I really don't feel comfortable testing the PSU on my own, and I don't think I have anyone that can do that for me so I'm not sure what to do after that

I have just booted into BIOS to check on the Power Fail settings and it is already set to Always Off. That throws a spanner into the works :-S Btw, I had disconnected my CD-RW but not my HDD cos it didn't like that very much. So...what now??? It doesn't actually appear to be anything at all after ruling everything out???

I don't know if I would be comfortable jumping the PSU if I'm honest. Is there anything else I can try? I'm not surrently at home so can't get cracking straight away, but what I am going to do is check for the Power-Off settings you mentioned and try running without my HDD. I don't think my board has Integrated Graphics so have to keep at least my Graphics Card in there.

EDIT : There was something I forgot to mention in my OP. When the PC powers back up after failure and I go to Shut Down correctly, it hangs on shut down until I hard power off from the PC. Though, seeing as it restarts idle from BIOS I don't think it's relevant

@Tog Thanks for this. I don't remember seeing this, but I am sure it must be there in some form.

@mickburkejnr np. A friend actually suggested the same thing, but I tried sitting idle in BIOS first so I ruled out any OS that way

@Tog the PC doesn't go through the shut down procedure just hard powers off and immediately restarts. I don't recall seeing a Power Fail Action but I will have a second look - could this be called something else?

@mickburkejnr as Tog said, this happens when sat in BIOS

Yes it is exactly one hour - I've tested that extensively. I had borrowed a PSU but the case is rather large and the cables rather small so I no longer have the option to test that sorry. I'm a touch stuck that way.
