What happens when your computer has few power to turn?

Question

My system will not boot up when I turn the power on. I have attempted to un-plug and then replug back in the monitor and CPU. This seems to work occassionally but now I am getting nothing. The monitor screen is powered up but the screen is blank. The Amber light on the front of the CPU comes on for only 15 seconds indicating that the harddrive is booting up and then goes out. Any suggestions would be helpful.

My dear friend your computer is not having the sufficient power to turn the computer, if you have too much device on your computer such as PCI cards, usb hub, firewire, this equipment consume too much power and would damage you power supply.

If you cannot boot at all then, it is time to buy a new power supply, you can take the damage power supply so you can buy the same power supply or you make ask the retailer person who work their and help you to find a power supply for high watts to support multidevices on your system.

Next time try not to plug too many devices that consume too much power such the CD-ROM.
